3Title:  Martin McFadden Papers     
 Creator:  McFadden, Martin 
 Dates:  1925-2003 
 Abstract:  Martin McFadden (1901-1981) was a Cleveland, Ohio, police officer for thirty-eight years. His family claim ancestry to Achill Island, County Mayo, Ireland. His father, also named Martin, immigrated to Cleveland, Ohio, in the late 1800s when he was twelve years old. The younger McFadden was a well-respected police officer and the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department requested his help as a bodyguard for four presidential inaugurations. McFadden was the arresting officer in the case of John W. Terry, Richard D. Chilton, and Carl Katz that led to the United States Supreme Court case of Terry v. Ohio (1968). The result of this case gave police officers the authority to stop and search citizens on the street. The collection consists of applications, appointments, assignments, citations, correspondence, drafts, fingerprints, handwritten notes, memoranda, newsletters, newspaper clippings, photographs, police records, programs, reports, a telegram, and transcripts.
