"HIS HIDEOUS TALE MADE HEARERS SHUDDER"
The article below, with an interesting group photo of the the defense witnesses, appeared in the Washington Post the following month. I see Mrs. Moyer, Mrs. Pettibone and Mrs. Adams. "Nevada Jane" Haywood was present daily in the courtroom but she could not be called to testify against her husband and is not in this picture. In reality, she could just as well be shown front and center, as her daily presence in the courtroom as the invalid wife, staged to perfection by Darrow, spoke loudly to the jury.
