William Boyd papers

About the Digital Collection

Papers relating to a dispute between William E. Boyd and Thomas J. Mackey, the latter having been accused of swindling several firms in or near Cambridge, Massachusetts. Mackey appears to have repeatedly opened accounts at various firms in Cambridge, Mass., representing himself as a Harvard Law student, and then leave town without paying debts. Included are three letters of C.C. Jones, Jr., relative to Mackey's activities.
