Summer of ’65: Superior Gambling Raid


Fifty years ago — Aug. 1, 1965 — the DNT reports of a gambling raid in Superior that was “one of the largest mass gambling arrests in Superior that detectives could recall.” Another article, at the mid-right of the page, will raise eyebrows for its racially offensive headline, though such a thing was sadly common at the time. It is a story out of Americus, Ga., by the way, and not Duluth.

Since this paper is a Sunday edition, it’s got a good load of lifestyle photos among the more serious news stuff. Here’s a peak.
