They Knew It When They Saw It

A federal grand jury indicts KU professor Raymond A.  for causing “obscene literature” to be sent through the mails by importing from Germany The History of Erotic Elements in Art by Eduard Fuchs.


United States District Attorney Robertson refused to prosecute the case and it was dismissed in October 1913.
