Hamilton Advertiser - - POLITICS -

The Ro­tary Club of Hamil­ton met at Hamil­ton Golf club last Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2.

Speaker Dr Barry Adamsstrump, a GP and past­pres­i­dent of the Ro­tary Club of Go­van, fo­cused upon mur­der cases in which the per­pe­tra­tors were doc­tors.

Dr Rux­ton, an In­di­an­born Bri­tish physi­cian, was hanged for the mur­ders of his com­mon law wife Is­abella and the fam­ily house­maid Jane Roger­son in 1935.

Dr Crip­pen, was an Amer­i­can who mur­dered wife Cora Hen­ri­etta Crip­pen in Lon­don, then fled to Amer­ica.

He is re­mem­bered in par­tic­u­lar for the fact he was the first sus­pect to be cap­tured due to mes­sages be­ing sent across the At­lantic by the new­ly­in­vented method of wire­less teleg­ra­phy.

Hamish Wil­son pro­posed a vote of thanks, which was warmly re­sponded to by all.
