The American Mercury

Judge Leonard Strickland Roan's instructions to the jury at Leo Frank's rape-murder trial

August 25 1913


Leo Max Frank (17 April 1884 – 17 August 1915) was a Jewish factory superintendent who was convicted in 1913 of the murder of a 13-year-old employee, Mary Phagan, in Atlanta, Georgia. His trial, conviction, and appeals attracted countrywide attention. He was lynched two years later, in response to the commutation of his death sentence.

The powerful Anti-Defamation League was established in 1915 in response to this.

Controversy has continued regarding the case, with continued attempts to turn Leo Frank into an innocent martyr.
