Title: Good old days? Not for killings—Homicide rate for 1930 nearly same as last year’s
Publisher: The Chicago Sun-Times
Author: Frank Main
Issue: June 8, 2004
Description: The Chicago Sun-Times article announcing the launch of the Homicide in Chicago 1870-1930 website, which received ~70k visits the weekend of its launch. What is perhaps most amazing about a new web database of 11,000 Chicago homicide cases from 1870 to 1930 is that violence in the city now (2004) was about the same almost 75 years ago.
