        We go the extra mile as you know on JTRForums....

        This is Samuel E. Hudson ( 1851-1918), born in Long Branch, New Jersey....and the compiler of the book you just read.
        He lived on 18th & Chestnut, curiously just 12 blocks from where Tumblety had his digs years before the Whitechapel Murders....and 11 blocks from where I was born.
        Sam had been a journalist, and a respected one to boot according to a 1879 newspaper article in the N.Y. Times, before compiling the Leather Apron book in 1888 at the age of 37.

        The photo comes from a 1909 book Pennsylvania & Its Public Men (Hudson & Joseph)

            Thanks for the photograph and background on Hudson, How and Nina.
            He reminds me of someone.

              Would the initials be M.C., Debs ?

                    Great thread, Howard and Nina!

                    M.C. might be M.C. Hammer.

                      I need to take a fresh look at my copy of 'Leather Apron'. It's probably been over a decade.

                      Yours truly,

                      Tom Wescott

                      P.S. LOL to Scott Nelson. But then the book would have been called 'Was Leather Apron From Hull?; or, the Horrors from Hull: A Full Account of Hull and Its Hullish Hull Stuff'

                        Not a man to dismiss lightly then, How? Old Sam had good pedigree. Good finds, mate.

                          Thank you, A.P.
                          I learned that Casebook didn't have it available, as it had been for years, so I decided to bring the book back to life.
                          If anyone on Casebook wanted to copy and paste what I posted on this thread, they are more than welcome to use it.
