A LISTSERV list for discussions pertaining to New York State history." <[log in to unmask]>

I am making this inquiry on behalf of a member of the New York Correction
History Society who is not a subscriber to this list.  I will pass along to
him any and all responses.

The member is doing research for an article he is writing about the youngest
person ever executed in America. His research so far indicates that person
was a 14 year old in South Carolina executed in 1946. He asks whether there
is there any way to confirm this. The researcher also wonders about who was
the youngest ever executed in his own state, New York, and specifically, the
youngest ever executed at Sing Sing?

The member on whose behalf this inquiry is made works in law enforcement and
also does freelance writing.  His articles have been published in various
general audience publications and professional journals.
