1Title:  Jacob Mintz Family Papers     
 Creator:  Mintz, Jacob Family 
 Dates:  1894-1949 
 Abstract:  Jacob Mintz (1867-1947) was a prominent private detective in Cleveland, Ohio, for over fifty years. Native to Cleveland, Mintz was descended on his father's side from Polish Jewish immigrants of the 1850s and Prussian Jewish immigrants of the 1860s on his mother's side. Mintz was a picturesque, high-profile professional during his successful career. A number of his jobs involved major events of the era. He served as bodyguard to Carrie Nation, the anti-drinking crusader, when she spoke in Cleveland in 1901. That same year, Mintz escorted the immediate family of Leon Czolgosz, the assassin of President William McKinley, to Buffalo, New York, to visit him in the days immediately after the assassination. The collection consists of business records, correspondence, and two scrapbooks of newspaper clippings regarding Jacob Mintz and newspaper clippings and a program regarding his son, Carl Mintz.
