Join Historic Jewish Atlanta Tours at the Marietta Museum of History for a special lecture on the Leo Frank case by legal expert Van Pearlberg.
About Van Pearlberg: Deputy Attorney General and former Marietta City Councilman Van Pearlberg is one of the foremost experts on the Frank case.
“This 1913 murder of 13-year old Mary Phagan at the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, Georgia set the stage for an ambitious prosecutor; the question as to credibility vs. believably of witnesses; the resurrection of the KKK; the election of a Senator; the downfall of a Governor; the fate of a “Yankee Jew”; and a lifelong secret to be kept by a 14-year old boy until his 80’s. This lecture chronicles the events from the arrest of Leo M. Frank to his lynching in Marietta, Georgia in 1915.”
