“Czolgosz’s Brother.” Akron Daily Democrat 1 Nov. 1901 v10n167: p. 1.

Waldeck Czolgosz (illustrations).
Named persons
The illustration (below) is one of three appearing on page 1 under the collective title “The Death Chamber and Those Who Participated in the Execution.”

The newspaper does not name the Czolgosz brother portrayed (the assassin had seven brothers and two stepbrothers). Presumably, though, it is Waldeck Czolgosz. The only Czolgosz family members present in Auburn, NY, at the time of the execution were Waldeck, a brother, and Thomas Bandowski, a brother-in-law. Neither man attended (or “participated” in) the execution.

Title herein taken from caption.
