Victoria Bruce and William Oldfield co-authored Inspector Oldfield and the Black Hand Society: America's Original Gangsters and the U.S. Postal Detective Who Brought Them to Justice to tell the incredible true story of the US Post Office Inspector who took down the deadly Black Hand, a turn-of-the-century Italian-American secret society that preyed on immigrants across America’s industrial heartland. The book features fascinating and never-before-seen documents and photos from the Oldfield family’s private collection. William Oldfield is not only the co-author of this amazing story but also the grandson of the one-of-a-kind inspector. Sponsored by the Department of History and Art History.
