Some interesting new materials added to the ‘Leo M. Frank Case Research Library’

‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ by Mary Phagan Kean.

Arguably the most even handed book on the Leo M. Frank Case, the book titled, ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ was written on behalf of Mary Anne Phagan (1899 to 1913), by her namesake and great-grand-niece, Mary Phagan Kean and published in 1987. The book makes the best attempt of all the books on the subject to provide a fair and balanced overview of what really happened, against the tide of numerous contemporary writers who mostly take the side of Leo Frank and claim he was railroaded, framed and scapegoated in a vast Anti-Jewish conspiracy.

If you are looking for a neutral account of the Leo M. Frank trial and aftermath, without taking sides, you will definitely want to read ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ by Mary Phagan Kean. The book is available for download in Adobe PDF Format here: The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean (click right mouse button and save as), 204 pages and 4.7MB. We obtained the digital copy of this book from archive.org and provide it as an addition in our library here for your perusal.

Five booklets, published as articles on the Leo M. Frank Case by Tom Watson.

Tom Watson, populist libertarian politician, writer, activist and seasoned lawyer.

Firebrand Tom Watson, a citizen of the State of Georgia, produced through his ‘Jeffersonian Publishing Company’ a monthly magazine called, ‘Watson’s Magazine’ and a newspaper titled, ‘The Jeffersonian’. Watson often criticized what he perceived as a corrupt and Internationalist Catholic Church, and during the tail end of the Leo Frank court appeals process, he unleashed ferociously sarcastic, devilishly witty and venomously energetic article booklets articulating Leo Frank’s guilt and condemning the Jewish Community and Frank partisans, generally known as Frankites, for waging a successful national media smear campaign against the State of Georgia and precipitating a letter writing campaigns across the northern and western states that resulted in an avalanche of support on behalf of Leo Frank drowning Governor John Marshal Slaton office with over 100,000 letters.

The Primary Southern Perception about the National “Jewish” War Waged Against the State of Georgia in 1914, and 1915.

Watson stepped into the media, social and political boxing ring, taking very distinct and personal interest in Leo Frank’s case after what was widely perceived and condemned amongst Southerners and particularly Georgians, as a national (and perhaps international because of rallies held in European Cities) media defamation war lead by the Jewish community waged against the State of Georgia.

Watson Articulates the Prosecution Position

Tom Watson’s writings on the Leo M. Frank Case tended to exquisitely articulate the prosecution side of the case (arguably better than the state’s prosecution team), including zooming in and expanding on the most damaging evidence presented at the trial. The reaction by Southerners after reading Watson’s five collective works (Watson’s Magazine, Jan, March, August, Sept and October 1915) tended to inflame an already great inferno of rage and indignation felt by the good people of Georgia and the South.

The perception Southerners had, before Watson published his five major works on the Leo Frank case, was they were being hounded by an outsider and National Jewish controlled press. Watson claimed Southerners for the first time experienced the new found power of the united Jewsmedia, which was smearing Georgians as small-minded and hidebound xenophobic cave dwellers, savages that would stop at nothing to quench their blood thirst. Once the commutation order was published by the office of Governor John M. Slaton after June 21st 1915, the people accused their Governor of being a toady manipulated by Jewish and moneybag meddlers, who undermined the Justice System of Georgia.

According to the Jewish Community, Watson Inspired the Lynching of Leo Frank

With strong reason, the Jewish community and many of Frank’s partisans would respond by accusing Watson of stirring up an Anti-Semitic climate of race hatred and inspiring the extra-judicial lynching of Leo Frank. Moreover, after the lynching, Watson continued to publish superb and commanding articulations of the Leo M. Frank trial, which were so well received by the citizens of Georgia, that observers might argue, made it impossible to convict any members of the lynch party, that is if their names had ever be made public at the time. However, it could also be equally argued that even if Watson, had not made comprehensible and definitive articulations of Frank’s guilt in his post lynching publications, that the mood of the people would still have made it impossible to convict Frank’s vigilante assassins. Though it is safe to say that the majority of the public had already made up their minds about Frank’s guilt by the time 1915 rolled around, Watson can be said to have mainly provided articulation of the great masses of Georgia that had full belief in Leo Frank’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Watson poured literary gasoline on that fiery precipitous of rage the people of Georgia experienced witnessing for the first time in any individual U.S. state, the vicious fist of Jewish Media Control seizing power over popular opinion in the United States of America (See: Watson’s Magazine, October, 1915). Since 1913, Jewish media control has slowly transformed the U.S. from a free Western superpower nation into an androgynous Jewish multicultural empire and police state nightmare in terminal decline towards civil war and eventual break-up.

Watson’s Magazine September and October, 1915

Watson offers his best legal analysis on the Leo M. Frank Case in his September and October 1915 issues of Watson’s Magazine. The arguments made against Leo M. Frank published in the September 1915 issue of Watson’s Magazine are possibly or arguably better than the actual arguments given by Prosecutor Hugh M. Dorsey and Mr. Hooper during the final August days of the Leo M. Frank Trial. Those who take the side of the prosecution might also claim there has yet to be a better articulation of Leo Frank’s guilt, than Watson’s August, Sept and Oct of 1915 publications. For the Jewish Community, Watson’s August, September and October 1915 publications would stand as the apogee of Anti-Semitism concerning the Leo Frank Case.

Prosecution Team vs. Tom Watson

For those familiar with the facts and evidence in the Leo M. Frank Case, one should read and review the Argument of Hugh M. Dorsey and Argument of Mr. Hooper comparing them with Watson’s September 1915 “Jew Pervert” booklet / article. Which particular ones tend to provide superior arguments using the murder trial testimony captured in the Brief of Evidence (1913).

Slaton on the Charge of Anti-Semitism

Though taking the side of Leo Frank, Governor John M. Slaton, would tend to corroborate Watson and the concerns of Southerners, by writing in his commutation order, that the charges of race hatred and injustice against the State of Georgia were unfair and that the people making such false accusations never actually read the official record or understood the facts in the Leo M. Frank case.

Ironically

Watson was approached at one unnamed point early in the Mary Phagan murder investigation to join the prosecution team and ironically enough, it is said that Watson was before that, originally approached by an unnamed party who offered him $5,000 to defend Leo M. Frank and join the Frank Legal Defense Team. Watson refused both offers, but his writing in 1914 and 1915, clearly indicates his position on the case. For those who are aficionados of exploring the time-web, it would have been truly fascinating beyond words to have read Watson’s arguments on behalf of Leo Frank had he accepted the five grand and joined the defense team. Watson’s closing arguments would have been equally delicious, if not more so if he had joined the State’s prosecution team.

American State Trials by John D. Lawson

A 1918 Primary Source emerged about the Leo M. Frank case produced by John D. Lawson, it provides an extensively abridged version of the Official Record in the 1913 Leo M. Frank trial. It is worth reading and comparing it directly with the testimony provided within the unabridged 1913 Official Record / Brief of Evidence. You can see what Lawson left out in terms of evidence and testimony, which is very interesting. Be sure to read the closing arguments of Luther Rosser, Reuben Arnold, Mr. Frank Hooper and Hugh M. Dorsey. These closing arguments are rarely given the lengthy and indepth analysis they deserve.

Compare American State Trials Volume X with the Official Brief of Evidence in the 1913 Leo M. Frank trial, both are available here.

A journal of major U.S. court cases, this one included much about Leo Frank. Available for download in Adobe PDF format: American State Trials 1918, Volume X.

The [Leo] Frank Case: The First Neutral Book Published About the Leo M. Frank Case in 1913

A book published shortly after the conviction of Leo M. Frank that goes into some very interesting depths on some subjects. Highly recommended, albeit the fact that this rare original book used for the scan shows the decades of exposure to air and use. Available for download in Adobe PDF format: The Frank Case.

Agrarian Rebel: The Biography of Tom Watson

Tom Watson, writer, lawyer and former U.S. Senator and House of Representatives member from the State of Georgia. Read the 1938 Biography, ‘Tom Watson: Agrarian Rebel’. Available for download in Adobe PDF format: Agrarian Rebel the Biography of Tom Watson from www.Archive.org.
