"The murder in the Harvard Medical School of Dr. George Parkman, a prominent Bostonian and Harvard Alumnus, by Professor John W. Webster was in the words of Edmund Pearson, `America's classic murder.' While there have been more mysterious cases, cases involving more prominent or notorious persons and others more macabre, the Parkman case still ranks high on the list of American murders. ... This is a good edition of the trial." McDade 1062.
