May 23, 2014 marks the 80th anniversary of the deaths of outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, ending their crime spree. A search for “Bonnie and Clyde” in The Portal to Texas History brings up quite a few photographs of places they visited. You can also find contemporary newspaper accounts of their activities. Additionally, our Clyde Barrow Gang Collection is a highly-popular collection of items from the Dallas Municipal Archives, containing photographs as well as fingerprint cards and other police documents. In fact, four of the top ten most-used items across the entire digital collections come from the Clyde Barrow Gang Collection. Be sure to have a look!
