Gangsters Up North – ZOOM

Thursday, Sep 1, 2022

7:00pm – 8:15pm

Author and historian Robert Knapp presents Gangsters Up North, a virtual Harbor History Talk, on Thursday, September 1 at 5:30 pm. Tales, myths and legends surrounding gangster activity in northern Michigan during the Prohibition era abound, but facts are harder to find. In his newest book, Knapp examines the truth and the fiction about gangsters in Michigan’s vacationlands.

This presentation will take place via Zoom and advanced registration is required. A Zoom link will be emailed to participants a few days prior to the presentation. Call (231) 526-9771 or register below. 

Robert Knapp was born and raised in the central Michigan area. During a thirty-year career at the University of California, Berkeley, he published extensively on topics in ancient history. In retirement his interests turned to the local history of Clare, Michigan, where he is restoring the log home built by his pioneering great-grandfather. His previous books include Clare, 1865-1940, Mystery Man—Gangsters, Oil, and Murder in Michigan and Small-town Citizen Minion of the Mob—Sam Garfield’s Two Lives—The Purple Gang Meyer Lansky and Life in Clare Michigan.
