Additional Details

Inked on the flyleaf are the names of two of the nine Scottsboro defendants, Roy Wright and Olen Montgomery, who were both released in July 1937 after 6 years on Death Row. Beneath in a later hand is the date of their arrest, 1931. We have found no other examples of their signatures for comparison, but believe these to be authentic.
