Brink’s Robbery: Crime of the Century
Thursday, September 19 @ 1:00 pmFree
The Medford Historical Society presents historian, author and Medford resident Stephanie Schorow for the talk “The Brink’s Robbery: The Crime of the Century.” Schorow, author of a book about the crime, will share the captivating story of a ragtag gang of petty thieves who committed the largest robbery in the United States on January 19, 1950, in Boston’s North End neighborhood. It was nearly the perfect crime. Learn how the robbery “went down” and the Medford connection.
Schorow, a former journalist for the Boston Herald and the Associated Press, has written several local history books, including “Inside the Combat Zone,” “The Boston Mob Guide,” “Drinking Boston,” “Boston on Fire,” and “The Cocoanut Grove Fire.”
Co-sponsored by the Medford Council on Aging and the Medford Public Library.
