LEPRECHAUNS ARE REAL! TRUE IRISH FOLKLORE
Twelve trips to Ireland enable Mr. Crowe to serlect the best Irish tales of haunted castles, fairy forts, witches, wizards, and family curses. Archaelogical evidence of "Little People" is discussed, and Crowe solves the century-old mystery of the Magic Bottle of Biddy Early, White Witch of County Clare.

LONDON GHOSTS AND THE MYSTERY OF JACK THE RIPPER
Crowe has made 6 trips to London gathering weird tales of pubs, museums, monuments and royal locales of England.

NEW ORLEANS GHOSTS
Every Spring Richard Crowe leads a 3-day weekend tour to the French Quarter of New Orleans. This talk illustrates a number of haunted sites in "Nawlins": the Lafitte Brothers Blacksmith Shop, Pierre Maspero's Old Slave Exchange, Gen. Beauregard's haunted mansion, and others.

NEW! GANGSTER GHOSTS AND SECRETS
(Approximately 1 hour, fully slide illustrated)
Hear the strange tales surrounding the hangouts of Al Capone, the cursed bricks of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre wall, unusual secrets of the Capone, Nitti and O'Bannion gravesites,the haunted Dillinger escape jail in Crowne Point (Indiana) and much more.

Richard Crowe was scheduled to appear on the celebrated Al Capone "treasure vault" television special, but was droppedfrom the show when he uncovered the real facts about the so-called "secret vault." Discover the inside story of Capone's headquarters at the Lexington Hotel! Years before the Capone Vault TV show, Crowe searched with a metal detector for lost treasure at the home and grounds of mobster Mossie Enwright (gunneds down in 1920) - a Chicago gangster legendary treasure tale with much more credence than the dubious Lexington Hotel tale.

Of all the Depression Era outlaws, none came near Indiana-born bank robber and would-be Robin Hood John Dillinger for creating a web of legends and mysteries in the public eye.

Did Dillinger actually escape and a double - a patsy - die in his place? This theory has been making the rounds for decades, as had earlier tales about the mythic escapes of Billy the Kid and Jesse James.

Probe these gangster legends and much more with Richard Crowe.

 

All lectures are followed by optional question & answer periods for up to 30 minutes.

Cost conscious? A lecture will not only NOT cost a club or group anything - it will leave you with money left over. A nominal fee at the door will cover the speaking fee and cover the few expenses. Ask for suggestions on promoting.
