Lester Joseph Gillis (December 6, 1908– November 27, 1934)

Gillis, known by the alias George Nelson, better known as Baby Face
Nelson, was a notorious bank robber in the 1930s. Gillis was given the
nickname Baby Face due to his youthful appearance and small stature,
although few dared call him "Baby Face" to his face. Criminal associates
instead called him "Jimmy". Nelson entered into a partnership with John
Dillinger
, helping him escape from prison during the famed Crown Point,
Indiana
Jail escape, and was later labeled along with the remaining gang
members as public enemy number one.

Nelson was responsible for killing more FBI agents in the line of duty
(three: W. Carter Baum, Herman Hollis, and Samuel P. Cowley) than
any other person. Nelson was fatally shot by FBI agents during a
shootout called The Battle of Barrington.

BONNIE & CLYDE LETTER UP FOR AUCTION

Boston (AP) – Bonnie and Clyde made it quite clear how they felt about a former
member of their gang in a letter they sent to him as he sat in the Dallas County
Jail.

He was a coward, they wrote, and they should have killed him when they had the
chance.

The four-page letter to Raymond Hamilton was written in April 1934 in Bonnie
Parker’s neat cursive and signed by Clyde Barrow. The auction house’s executive
vice president, Robert Livingston said It could fetch more than $40,000 when it’s
sold next month by Boston-based RR Auction,

Livingston said Wednesday, based on the language, experts think Barrow, who
had poor writing skills, likely dictated the letter to Parker.
