Maxwell Bodenheim Born In Mississippi In 1892 Murdered In Greenwich Village 1954

Maxwell Bodenheim was born in Mississippi in 1892. His family moved to Chicago when he was 8 years old.  The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi has a good collection of his books in the Mississippi Room in the University Library. They also have good collections of many other Mississippi authors.
