About me

My name is Shayne Davidson. I was trained as an artist and medical illustrator, not a historian, but I love history. My book about the first police rogues’ gallery in America, published by the Missouri History Museum Press, is now available.

I’m fascinated by vintage photography, particularly mugshots, along with genealogy and crime history. My goal in my writing is to combine these interests with my enthusiasm for digging around in old newspapers and archives.

The photos on the blog are from my own collection or from archival collections with attributions. The stories are based on my research.

I hope you enjoy reading the blog as much as I enjoy writing it!
