Biographical History

On February 17, 1947 a group of white men lynched Willie Earle. Earle was accused of murdering a taxi driver in Pickens, South Carolina and arrested for the crime. A group of men seized him from the county jail and lynched him in Greenville. Investigations resulted in the arrest of thirty-one suspects who were tried in May 1947 and found not guilty. The files document the Federal Bureau of Investigation's involvement in the case and documentation of its coverage in the media. Professor Gravely obtained these files under the Freedom of Information Act in 2001.

From the description of Will Gravely collection - Willie Earle investigation, 1947-2001 (bulk 1947) (Clemson University Libraries). WorldCat record id: 225894123
