Leo Max Frank Bibliography, Chronology, Citations, and References
Pratt Institute Monthly mentions Leo Frank on the Debate team in June 1902 and mentions Leo Frank’s Brooklyn address as an Alumni in February, 1903. http://leofrank.org/library/pratt-institute/pratt-institute-monthly-1902.pdf. Google map is available.
Steve Oney (Dead Shall Rise, 2003) claims, as do other Jewish-American authors that Leo Frank was 5’6″ and 130lbs., but reliable primary sources state otherwise. Leo Frank’s 1906 Senior Class Book at Cornell University registers him at 5’8″ and 145lbs (page 344 and 345). He would likely gain 10 to 15 lbs beyond his college years, which is the normal tendency commonly known for people entering the work force, especially after marriage is added to the equation. Leo Frank’s U.S. passport (1907-8) registers his height at 5’8″, sustaining the demographic information listed for him in his senior class book (Cornell, 1906). Concerning Leo Frank’s weight, guess what’s more reliable, Steve Oney’s claims or the Cornell Senior Class Book (1906) on page 345 that gives the more likely correct information. Concerning Leo Frank’s height, guess what’s more reliable and accurate, Leo Frank’s 1908 U.S. passport (National Archive Records, Ancestry.com) or Steve Oney (2003) and Albert Lindemann (1991) mistaking line 178 for 177 in the Cornell Senior Year Book (1906) on page 345? (Leo Frank Alma Mater, 1902 – 1906)
1907 / 1908.
Leo Frank’s official U.S. government passport registers him at 5’8″: http://leofrank.org/images/passport-leo-frank/leo-max-frank-passport-application.jpg and based on his lean muscle build, he was likely around 155 lbs to 160lbs in 1913 based on his 1906 college weight of 145lbs. The fact most people at the height of 5’8″ gain 10 to 15lbs, about 5 to 10 years after college and marriage is not inconceivable in the early 20th century. Compare 29-year-old Leo Frank’s physical size in 1913, to 13-year-old Mary Anne Phagan who was 4’11” tall, she was considered heavy for her height and age at about 107lbs. If this demographic information is indeed correct, Leo Frank was about 9″ inches taller than Mary Phagan.
Subtle Prejudicing of the Reader:
Most Leo Frank partisan revisionists intentionally lower Leo Frank’s height and weight, even though they have access to reliable primary sources about his demographic information to prejudice their readers. The artificial physical downsizing of Leo Frank is done in an effort to make him seem smaller than he was in real life, with the intention of making it seem less likely he could have attacked and over powered Mary Phagan. This kind of milquetoast effect is achieved by overstating Jim Conley to be a thick, stocky and muscular brute, but in real life Jim Conley was not body builder like as numerous images of him show and he was actually 2 inches shorter than Leo Frank. This body morphology manipulation is known as the ‘Leo Frank Girlyman Hoax’ and it’s perpetuated by a number of Leo Frank partisans (Frankites) and Jewish-American authors, despite the reliable primary sources publicly available to them.

April 17, 1913, Leo Frank celebrates his 29th birthday.
Monday, April 21, 1913, Mary Phagan, Monteen Stover and several other girls are temporarily laid off until new brass sheet supplies can be restocked in the metal room.
April 25, 1913, Friday
1. On Friday, April 25, 1913, Leo Frank told his Negro nightwatchman Newt Lee to come to work the next day – Saturday, April 26, 1913 – one hour earlier at 4:00 PM instead of the normal Saturday check-in time of 5:00 PM. Leo Frank wanted to end his workday early, because of the Georgia State holiday of Confederate Memorial Day and Frank specifically told Lee that he wanted to go to the baseball game in the early afternoon with his brother-in-law Mr. Ursenbach, who was married to one of Lucille’s older sisters Roseline. What time was 30 minutes to 1 hour before the ball game started?
2. At 6:30pm Miss Ferguson (a friend of Mary Phagan) and co-worker at the factory came in to collect her weekly pay in the evening of Friday, April 25, 1913. Mary Phagan asked if Ms. Ferguson could also get her pay envelope as well, but Leo Frank said according to Ferguson, “No, Mary has to come get it herself”. Leo Frank’s response to Ferguson was odd, because it was a normal corporate policy to allow friends, family and pre-arranged people to pick up the pay for other people. What made matters worse, is that Leo Frank would admit to having given pay envelopes on behalf of other people to friends, family and associates as a normal procedure. Why did Leo Frank maneuver to have Mary Phagan meet him alone? Could Miss Ferguson have been covering for Mary Anne Phagan? If this is the case, did Mary Phagan have a pre-arranged tryst with Leo Frank? This is a variation in the time web that neither the defense or prosecution dared to publicly consider.
The Negro Watch Dog
3. On Friday April 25, 1913, Leo Frank told Jim Conley after paying him his weekly salary of sometimes $6.75 or sometimes $6 and change (55 hours x 11 cents), to come to the factory at 8:30 AM Saturday Morning so James “Jim” Conley could “watch” for Leo Frank, like he normally did on other Saturdays, and it was understood there would likely be a decent tip involved. For Jim Conley it was nice extra pocket change, considering a typical Atlanta divebar sold pints of beer at 3 to 5 cents in 1913.
April 26, 1913, Saturday, Confederate Memorial Day
On Confederate Memorial Day, Atlanta, Georgia at 12:01 PM, Mary Phagan arrived at the pencil factory, walked up the stairs and went into Leo Frank’s 2nd floor office to collect her pay envelope, she had been temporarily laid off and due $1.20 for her shortened week.
The 55 hour labor work week was recorded in a Thursday to Thursday cycle, payoff time was Saturday, noon sharp. However there were exceptions, because of the Georgia State Memorial Day that turned into a holiday weekend began on Saturday, signs were posted throughout the factory the week before, letting people know they would be paid on Friday instead. Saturday at highoon, was the standard day and time for payment, employees or ex-employees that missed this precise time were required to come back next week for their pay as a corporate policy and this is what happened to Monteen Stover that became the lynch pin for the case. Something unusual happened at the NPCo that resulted in Monteen Stover to coming back to the National Pencil Company, Saturday, May 3rd, 1913 with her step mother to pick up her pay envelope. The amount? $1.20 as well.
Because of the Phagan murder, Monteen Stover made the decision to no longer be an employee, but when she came back for her final payenvelope on May 3rd, 1913, she was discovered by police. The police were even more certain Leo Frank was guilty after Monteen Stover told them what happened, and when they approached Leo Frank and asked him if he was present in his office from noon to 12:45 and then again restating the time as noon to 12:35, Leo Frank swore he never left his office. The inconsistency was that Monteen Stover said Leo Frank’s office was completely empty between the complete 5 minutes of 12:05 to 12:10 PM on that gray drizzly day.
Mary Phagan had be laid off on Monday, April 21, 1913, because the supply of brass sheet metal had run out and it was normally stored under the stairs on the eastern most wall of the metal room. Mary’s normal salary of about $4.05 was for a 55 hour week at 7 and 4/11 cents an hour, but would only be $1.20 (16 hours), because of the reduction of her work week hours when the brass sheet metal had run out. Her odd 16 hours included a full day, Friday, April 18, 1913, a half day Saturday, April 19, 1913 and one hour on Monday, April 21, 1913. Mary and three other girls were laid off until the metal shipment was to be delivered sometime the following week, but when were they due? This was a temporary lay off right? or was it a long term or even final layoff?
When did Leo Frank see Mary Phagan?
Leo Frank was the Last Person to Admit Seeing Her Alive at 12:03 pm (Sunday, April 27, 1913), 12:05 to 12:10 pm (Monday, April 28, 1913), 12:10pm (Coroner’s Inquest, May 1913), 12:12 to 12:17 pm (August 18, 1913), 12:05 to 12:10 pm (Atlanta Constitution, March 9, 1914).
Leo Frank would be the last person to admit seeing Mary Phagan alive under some very unusual circumstances.
Can We Travel Down the Time Web, Back in Time?
Variation One: Did Leo Frank coax Mary into the metal room with a let’s see if the metal had come?
Variation Two: Did Leo and Mary have a pre-planned rendezvous in the metal room that took a wrong turn?
Variation Three: Did Mary Phagan have to make Water? See Defendant’s Exhibit 61 and State’s Exhibit A.
Variation Four: She Went Downstairs and was assaulted in the lobby of the first floor.
What really happened in the Metal Room from 12:02 PM to 12:19 PM, or 12:03 to 12:45 pm on Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913 at Noon and what led up to it?
What caused the flash of anger?
When Leo Frank left the NPCo to his in laws home at 68 East Georgia Avenue for lunch at 1:00 pm (Leo Frank Trial Statement), or 1:10 pm (Leo Frank Police Deposition, Monday, April 28, 1913) or 1:20pm (Minola McKnight Affidavit, June 3, 1913, stated Frank got home at 1:30, the trip from the office to home was 8 minutes), can we presume he likely would not have gone back to the factory afterwards, instead preparing to get ready and go see the baseball game with Mr. Ursenbach his brother in law? By phone Leo Frank called off the ballgame date with Mr. Ursenbach when he arrived at his residence on Saturday, April 26, 1913.
April 27, 1913, Sunday
3:17 to 3:19 AM, Newt Lee, after using the Negro toilet discovers Mary Phagan dead and slumped in front of the cellar furnace, located in the rear of the basement.
3:23AM, Newt Lee, reaches the wall phone in Leo Frank’s office (located between 2 windows), calls the police, and reaches Atlanta Call Officer W.F. Anderson at 3:24 AM. Britt Craig the young journalist is there waiting.
3:45 AM, Police arrive at 37 to 41 South Forsyth Street, Atlanta, GA and meet Newt Lee in the palladium front doorway of the factory, they watched his smoky lantern descend from the inky black staircase.
Newt Lee led the flash light and lantern wielding police down the scuttle hole to the scene of the crime, deep in the bowels of the National Pencil Company.

* Lawson, John Davison (ed.). American State Trials Volume X (1918) contains the abridged trial testimony starting on p. 182. This document also contains the rare and ellusive closing arguments of the Leo M. Frank defense team and prosecution team. *Required Reading.
A 1918 Primary Source emerged about the Leo M. Frank case produced by John Davison Lawson LLD, it provides an extensively abridged version of the Official Record in the 1913 Leo M. Frank trial. It is worth reading and comparing American State Trials 1918, Volume X 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 it is the only source I could find with them.

* They Won’t Forget (1937) A pretty schoolgirl is murdered. An ambitious prosecutor wants publicity. And an outsider – a Northern teacher in a sleepy Southern town – makes a handy defendant, someone the locals will happily convict, innocent or guilty. Based on the infamous Leo Frank case, They Won’t Forget is an explosive, acclaimed indictment of bigotry that’s rich in deceptive motives, sudden violence and courtroom suspense. The talent is as powerful as the story: Mervyn LeRoy (I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang) produced and directed with steady hand and crackling pacing, Robert Rossen (The Hustler) co-wrote the unflinching script, Claude Rains (Casablanca) etches a portrait of the ruthless prosecutor with poison and guile, and in her first credited role, Lana Turner makes the schoolgirl beguiling prey for an unhinged mind.

Short Stand in Dixieland Page 237
Line 27: “The Jewish community of Atlanta at that time seemed to live under a cloud. Several years previously one of its members, Leo Frank, had been lynched as he was being transferred from the Fulton Tower Prison in Atlanta to Milledgeville for trial on a charge of having raped and murdered a little girl in his warehouse which stood right opposite the Constitution building. Many Jewish citizens who recalled the lynching were unanimous in assuring me that Frank was innocent of the crime.
I took reading all the evidence pro and con in the record department at the courthouse. Before long I came upon an envelope containing a sheaf of papers and a number of X-ray photographs showing teeth indentures. The murdered girl had been bitten on the left shoulder and neck before being strangled. But the X-ray photos of the teeth marks on her
To Number Our Days, Page 238
body did not correspond with Leo Frank’s set of teeth of which several photos were included. If those photos had been published at the time of the murder, as they should have been, the lynching would probably not have taken place.
Though, as I said, the man died several years before, it was too late, I thought, to rehabilitate his memory and perhaps restore the good name of his family. I showed Clark Howell the evidence establishing Frank’s innocence and asked permission to run a series of articles dealing with the case and especially with the evidence just uncovered. Mr. Howell immediately concurred, but the most prominent Jewish lawyer in the city, Mr. Harry Alexander, whom I consulted with a view to have him present the evidence to the grand jury, demurred. He said Frank had not even been tried. Hence no new trial could be requested. Moreover, the Jewish community in its entirety still felt nervous about the incident. If I wrote the articles old resentments might be stirred up and, who knows some of the unknown lynchers might recognize themselves as participants in my description of the lynching. It was better, Mr. Alexander thought, to leave sleeping lions alone. Some local rabbis were drawn into the discussion and they actually pleaded with Clark Howell to stop me from reviving interest in the Frank case as this was bound to have evil repercussions on the Jewish community.
That someone had blabbed out of school became quite evident when I received a printed warning saying: “Lay off the Frank case if you want to keep healthy.” The unsigned warning was reinforced one night, or rather, early one morning when I was driving home. A large automobile drove up alongside of me and forced me into the track of a fast-moving streetcar coming from the opposite direction. My car was demolished, but I escaped without a scratch…. ”

PhD Dissertation: Leonard Dinnerstein
PhD dissertation on the Leo Frank Case by Leonard Dinnerstein at Columbia University for Political Science Department (1966). http://leofrank.org/library/dissertation-thesis/leonard-dinnerstein-dissertation-leo-frank-case-1966.pdf An academic diatribe revealing Leonard Dinnerstein another Jew pathologically obsessed with anti-Semitism to the extreme limit, that he is willing to distort the case.
Dinnerstein has spent about 50 years of his life studying the Leo Frank case through the lens of a man suffering from the pathology of persecution mania. If you suffer from Jewish victim-persecution syndrome and want to read the melodramatic version of Leo Frank that omits 99% of the evidence incriminating Leo Frank, read this dissertation by Leonard Dinnerstein.
The Leo Frank case by Leonard Dinnerstein, first edition 1968, is an expanded version of his 1966 Columbia University dissertation on the subject. See: Leonard Dinnerstein is director of Judaic Studies at the University of Arizona (Retired).
Several later editions of the book exist, dated 1987, 1991, 1999, 2008 (did i miss any dates?), one version is called, ‘Notable Trials Library edition’, 1991. Regardless of how many times the book is re-written and published it is still regarded as filled with errors, unreliable and incomplete on the Leo Frank trial and appeals.
Dinnerstein does a good job of misrepresenting and spinning the facts, evidence and testimony of the case on behalf of Leo Frank, while selectively omitting all the relevant evidence against him. Leonard Dinnerstein invested 50 years of his Intellectual manipulation in the Leo Frank Case and still can’t get the story right. He doesn’t dare plumb the depths of this affair. Leonard Dinnerstein is another Jewish Spineless Coward who doesn’t dare swan dive into abyss of Leo Frank’s dark soul and tell the tale correctly. Leonard Dinnerstein’s book is in complete contradiction to the 1,800 page GA Supreme Court case file on Leo Frank (Required Reading) at www.archive.org the Internet Archive.
* Dinnerstein, Leonard, The Leo Frank Case (book version) written by pseudo-scholar, pseudo-historian and Jewish Left Wing University of Arizona Professor, Leonard Dinnerstein, who did his dissertation on the Leo Frank Case and who often distorts and exaggerates claims of Anti-Semitism in other books he has written about history.

In the miniseries during the trial the windows are opened (total fabrication), and people start screaming Anti-Semitic words drowning out the court and then hundreds of people stand up and start singing loudly in court taking it over (this never happened in real life, and if it had the newspapers would have been all over it). This miniseries is just one more example of an uncountable number of Jewish made and disseminated disinformation and media propaganda campaigns against European-Americans, the United States of America and Western Civilization, like the Jewish created “People vs. Leo Frank” (2009) this movie also reaches the heights of Jewish insolence, spin, slander and lies, completely twisting the facts, evidence and testimony unforgivably. Study the Leo Frank case in great detail and then watch this miniseries which is the grotesque epiphany of Jews smearing human feces into the face of truth.
The chunky, androgynous, dumpy, and bulldykish looking Mrs. Leo Frank is often idealized in Jewish media representations as thin and beautiful, examples include “Thou Shalt Not Kill” (1915) silent film surviving photos; “The Murder of Mary Phagan” (1987) 4-hour miniseries; and “the People vs. Leo Frank” (2009), the fictionalized docudrama.
The Murder of Mary Phagan, a 1987 two-part TV miniseries made by Orion Pictures Corporation and distributed by National Broadcasting Company (NBC), is a dramatization of the story of Leo Frank, a factory manager charged and convicted with murdering a 13-year-old girl, a factory worker named Mary Phagan, in Atlanta, Georgia in 1913. The trial was sensational and controversial. After Frank’s legal appeals had failed, the governor of Georgia in 1915 commuted his death sentence to life imprisonment. In 1915 Frank was kidnapped from prison and lynched by a small group of prominent men of Marietta, Georgia. The film features Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Rebecca Miller, Charles Dutton, Peter Gallagher, Cynthia Nixon, Dylan Baker, and William H. Macy. Written by Larry McMurtry, produced by George Stevens, Jr., and directed by William “Billy” Hale, the film was shot in Richmond, Virginia. It has a running time of 251 minutes (over 4 hours), originally broadcast over two evenings. The film won the 1988 Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries.

* Watson, Tom. Watson’s Magazine, Jeffersonian Publishing Company, September 1915, Volume 21, Number 5, The Official Record in the Case of Leo Frank, A Jew Pervert. Firebrand Tom Watson, solves the murder of Mary Phagan, by utilizing the official Georgia State record of trial testimony given by Leo Frank. The official record Tom Watson is referring to in the title of his text is the elusive legal ‘brief of evidence’, known in legal terminology as, ‘Leo M. Frank, Plaintiff in Error, vs. State of Georgia, Defendant in Error. In Error from Fulton Superior Court at the July Term 1913. Brief of Evidence’, it contains the testimony and evidence at Frank’s murder trial which was ratified by both the ‘Leo Frank Defense’ and ‘Leo Frank Prosecution’ teams. An irrevocable blunder is made by Leo M. Frank during his own murder trial testimony to the Fulton County Superior Court Jury on August 18th 1913. Frank states what amounts to a confession that he murdered Mary Phagan in second floor metal room with an “unconscious” bathroom visit. Frank told his murder trial Jury he went to the toilet or to urinate, to account for not seeing Monteen Stover, a young white girl, who was waiting in Frank’s empty second floor office from 12:05 to 12:10 on April 26th 1913. Frank entrapped himself beyond escape, because in order to get to the bathroom on the second floor, one has to walk through the door of metal room to then get inside the metal room, before one can reach the toilets in the far corner. The prosecution spent 29 days trying to prove to the Jury that Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan in the Metal Room between 12:05 to 12:15 on April 26th 1913. Leo M. Frank explained his absence from his 2nd floor office by essentially in a roundabout way confessing to murdering Mary Phagan between 12:05 to 12:15 on April 26th 1913.

Leo Frank Alleged Murder Confession #2 (incriminating statement), see Lucille Selig Frank and Minola McKnight (State’s Exhibit J, June 3rd, 1913). From The Leo Frank Case by Koenigsberg, “One of the most intriguing circumstances in the pre-trial development of this case involved a document signed by the black cook in the Frank/Selig household (Minola McKnight). Frank’s attorneys, would long argue that it was coerced by the police as a result of “third degree methods.” Since 1913, it has never been shown in its entirety, and we are glad to present it here. Also unmentioned in the last 9 decades is the sequence of events that led up to its appearance. Minola would make three affidavits in all (May 3rd, June 2nd & 3rd), but her over-night incarceration was specifically caused by her husband Albert’s statement made on May 26, and notarized on June 2nd (at the left). This description of events has never been cited, with only an oblique reference in the Samuelses’ Night Fell on Georgia (1956). The most striking sentence (and odd omission) is shown here for the first time: “Mrs. Frank had a quarrel with Mr. Frank the Saturday morning of the murder she asked Mr. Frank to kiss her good bye and she said he was saving his kisses for _______ and would not kiss her.” Readers may wish to consider its authenticity, as new light is shed on why Leo Frank “so thoughtfully” bought his wife a box of chocolates from Jacobs’ Pharmacy just before returning home at 6:30 pm on April 26th.” (LeoFrankCase.Com, Retrieved 2012).
Leo Frank Incriminating Statement #3: https://www.leofrank.org/confession/. On August 18, 1913, Leo Frank mounted the witness stand to give a four hour unsworn statement and he responded to Monteen Stover’s testimony about his office being empty between 12:05pm and 12:10pm, by saying:
Now, gentlemen, to the best of my recollection from the time the whistle blew
for twelve o’clock until after a quarter to one when I went up stairs and spoke
to Arthur White and Harry Denham, to the best of my recollection, I did not stir
out of my office; but it is possible that in order to answer a call of nature or
to urinate I may have gone to the toilet. Those are things that a man does
unconsciously and can not tell how many times nor when he does it. Now, sitting
in my office at my desk, it is impossible for me to see out into the outer hall
when the safe door is open, as it was that morning, and not only is it
impossible for me to see out, but it is impossible for people to see in and see
