I was reading a book about the famous Chicago teenager killers Leopold & Loeb
Anyway I wanted some help reading one of the photos in the book.
It’s the admission and pictures of Richard Loeb as he and Leopold were being inducted into Joliet Prison
Here’s Loeb’s overall pic
OK now here is the top part with Richard Loeb’s stats. I have blown this up. (note it’s a fairly big jpg so if anyone is on dial up it’ll take awhile)
Here is my questions:
Now the first stats says
Height 74.7 (if I’m reading this right, correct me if wrong). And I am assuming that is inches.
Underneath It says ENG HEIGHT: 5.8 3/4
Which I’m assuming is English height? Which I assume is feet and inches. So I am reading that as 5 feet 8 3/4 inches. Perhaps that is wrong.
Either way one of them is wrong. 'Cause 74 inches is over six feet. I’ve always read Loeb was over 6 feet tall. But you know how that is, it could easily be wrong. I would think an induction form at Joliet Prison would be more accurate
Now if you look at Leopold’s sheet (<-This is his overall induction sheet)
I’ve blown up the stats part of the above image so you can read it.
Now here it gives Leopold’s height as 65.8 and Eng Height as 5.5 1/4. Well 65 inches is 5 ft 5 inches (well about)
So do you think I’m reading this wrong? Or was there an error on Loeb’s induction sheet?
A couple of questions about the sheet
I noticed it say Age: and Apparent age. I am assuming age is actual age, while aparent age, is how old the inductee would look?
Also what is the color of their eyes? It looks like Loeb is Hazel but it almost looks like Hz Green and Steel Blue underneat.
It looks like Leopold is reading Oi Black?? and underneat that is says ST Blue, whatever that is.
And how does the hair / beard color read, it looks like XXX-Drk. I can’t make out the XXX part
I hope this makes sense.
