Harry K. Thaw and Evelyn Nesbitt - The Murder of Stanford White (12)

Harry K. Thaw and Evelyn Nesbitt - The Murder of Stanford White (12)

During the suggestive chorus song, "I Could Have Loved A Thousand Girls," at the premiere performance of the musical revue Mamzelle Champagne at the Madison Square Roof Garden, a building that Stanford White had designed 15 years previously, White was shot point blank in the face and killed by Harry K. Thaw. Thaw was the jealous millionaire husband of Evelyn Nesbit, a popular actress and artist's model, whom White had seduced when she was 16. The ensuing trial was a media circus and Hearst's own paper sensationalized as The Trial of The Century. Offered are a collection of photos starring Thaw and Nesbit. Most have their original paper caption. EX+ overall. 7x9".
