Nathan and Joseph Silverman 1938

Photo Details

Nathan Silverman, surplus Army goods dealer, shown arriving at the Supreme Court where he was on trial with his brother, Joseph Silverman, and former Brig. Gen. Alexander E. Williams, on charges of conspiracy.

They were accused of conspiring to prevent an important witness from testifying during the House Military Affairs Committee inquiry into alleged splitting of $10,000,000 in war material contracts. Yes, $10 million dollars - in 1938! That's a lot of money!
