G-Men and Journalists Exhibit

This was a very interesting exhibit. The second picture is the death mask of John Dillinger.

A little more about the exhibit:

The FBI’s efforts to fight crime and its starring role in popular culture are examined in an exhibit now at the Newseum. With 200 artifacts — including the Unabomber’s cabin, Patty Hearst’s coat and gun and the electric chair that killed the Lindbergh baby kidnapper — nearly 300 photographs, dozens of historic newspapers and interactive displays, the exhibit reflects the sometimes cooperative, sometimes combative relationship between the FBI and the news media.
