Letter by Albert D. Glibert, killer of mill superintendent John W. Bevis

Photograph of a letter by mill worker Albert D. Glibert, handwritten before he shot and killed John W. Bevis, superintendent of the Inman-Poulsen mill in Portland, on February 28, 1931. Glibert had been laid off from his job at the mill. The letter reads: “Possibly due to the terrible condition and unfairness of the dominative class, it is time for a proof or demonstration that some drastic measure must be used so as to effect enough changes to permit all the working people a chance for a living, no use to wait for the favored ones that have plenty to bring any suddent [sic] improvement many of the working people will be starved if it depend [sic] on the satified [sic] to make any changes with out [sic] being forced to do so. I have been treated unfairly and I know it / A. D. Glibert.” A photograph of the letter and image No. 371N0923, a portrait of Glibert, were published on Page 2 of the Oregon Journal on March 1, 1931, under the headline “Slayer and Death Note.” The photograph of the letter had the following caption: “The letter which Albert D. Glibert handed to John W. Bevis, superintendent of the Inman-Poulsen mill, before Glibert shot and killed him Saturday morning indicates that Glibert had been brooding over his discharge from the plant and blamed Bevis for it. The missive is pictured here.” Later, on July 30, 1931, the Journal reported that Glibert had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison. The Journal reported that the plea followed a trial on first-degree murder charges in which the jury was unable to agree on a verdict.
