1 CUDAHY DIES
CHICAGO, Oct. 18, (AP) — Edward A. Cudahy, Sr., 91, a founder and head of the Cudahy packing company, died today of a heart ailment. He had spent 68 years in the packing business, starting as a lad of 13 employed in driving cattle from the pens to the slaughtering house.
Mr. Cudahy also became known worldwide when his 16-year-old son Edward Jr. was kidnapped and held for $25,000 ransom in 1900. Pat Crowe was the kidnapper. You can read more about that here. (I just hope that he isn’t one of MY Crowes … or do I?)

I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
