The Dayton 1933 Arrest of John Dillinger

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Kettering Moraine
Community Room

John Dillinger's infamous “career” as a bank robber and, eventually, the FBI’s first “Public Enemy No. 1”, lasted little more than a year. Released from the Indiana State Prison in May 1933, his first of many bank holdups was in the neighboring community of New Carlisle. Love-struck, his frequent visits to his Dayton girlfriend led to his arrest by Dayton police officers on September 22, 1933. The local mug shot of a defiant Dillinger furthered his celebrity. He was unable to escape Dayton custody but did so many times in other cities over the next few months only to die in gunfire on July 22, 1934 at the hands of federal agents. Steve Grismer, of the Dayton Police History Foundation shares this story.

What other times did Mr. Lincoln visit the Buckeye state? What happened that caused him to make that comment?
