The Camille DeRose story

Chicago: De Rose Publishing Co. 1953. 348p., very good hardcover.

DeRose had turned an underworld career into respectability through apartment ownership. Integration attempts provoked unrest that De Rose frames in the anticommunist hysteria of the period, blaming "colored incendiaries" and "the growling form of communism implicit in rent control" for her problems.
