CAPTAIN FLATTERY STORIES
It’s Flattery, dammit. Accept no imitations.
Henry Flattery joined the NYC police force in 1915, barely three years after arriving here as a 17-year-old mick off a cold winter boat. After serving as an American infantryman during the first world war, he returned to his post in Queens and became a pioneer in the use of science and psychology in police forensics. A few solved homicides later, including the Damon Runyan-dubbed “Dumbbell Murder,” Flattery got somewhere quickly – rising through the ranks to Detective Captain within a few years.
Captain Flattery reported directly to the Queens District Attorney during the most tumultuous times in New York City history. His career spanned two world wars, suffrage, prohibition, gangsters, tommy guns, the depression and beyond. Hell, maybe if we go back far enough we can kill baby Hitler.
