Bonnie and Clyde scoop
In 1933 The Joplin Globe had a country-wide scoop, obtaining the camera left behind by Bonnie and Clyde after a deadly confrontation with local police, developing and publishing the rolls of film in it, including the now-legendary photos of Bonnie holding Clyde at mock gunpoint and of Bonnie with her foot on a fender, pistol in her hand and cigar in her mouth.
Gilbert Barbee was born in 1850 in Ritchey, Newton County, Missouri. Barbee made his fortune in lead mining and owned the Joplin Globe and later established and published the Joplin Tribune. Barbee was the Jasper County Democratic Party boss and he owned the Barbee Park racetrack and the famous House of Lords. Barbee died in 1924 in Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri.
