- Charles Manson -
(born November 12, 1934 as Charles Milles Maddox) The founder and leader of the "Manson Family," an alleged religious cult whose members he commanded to commit the August, 1969, Tate-LaBianca murders in Los Angeles. He is currently an inmate at Corcoran State Prison in California, having been denied parole many times.

Manson has spent most of his adult life in prison, initially for offenses such as car theft, forgery, credit card fraud and pimping. In the late 1960s, he migrated to California, wanting to become a musician; instead, he befriended the young, disenfranchised people he met and began calling them his "Family." He ordered them to kill movie actress Sharon Tate who was eight and a half months pregnant at the time. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder. He is serving a life sentence in California's Corcoran State Prison, and will be up for parole in 2007 at the age of 73. Manson has always maintained his innocence of the Tate-LaBianca murders.

Since his trial and conviction, Manson's name and image have been integrated into American pop culture, typically as a symbol of evil.

"Newsweek 1975"
featuring Squeaky Fromme on the cover. Squeaky made national headlines when she attempted to assassonate President Ford. After a lengthy trial in which she refused to cooperate with her own defense, she was convicted of the attempted assassination of the president and received a life sentence under a 1965 law which made attempted presidential assassinations a federal crime punishable by a maximum sentence of life in prison. When U.S. Attorney Dwayne Keyes recommended severe punishment because she was "full of hate and violence", Fromme threw an apple at him, hitting him in the face and knocking off his glasses.This magazine is in very nice condition.
