The museum, in the old East Liverpool jail, has an entire section devoted to Pretty Boy Floyd's brief lawbreaking career, a subject that interests curator/officer Kelsey Hedrick.

Pretty Boy Floyd's Death Mask

I am 87, and saw Pretty Boy Floyd at the Sturgis Funeral Home with my dad. We lived just 10 minutes away. The death mask was made of "slip," not flip. It was made by my uncle, Jack Owen, a potter. I saw it many times when he kept it behind a door in his home. When my uncle died, his widow gave it away because she hated it. Jack's son, my cousin, still lives in Chicago and can verify this.
