I just want to give my warmest thanks for all the contributions and constant support in the making of The John Dillinger Website, and for sharing an interest in my book Dillinger,The Hidden Truth. Thank you, point blank to the highest caliber of gratitude!
Sincerely, Tony Stewart


It would be to hard to mention everyone so here's a just few that I'd like to tilt my hat and give a huge applaud.

First and foremost I'd like to thank my great aunt, and Dillinger's only wife Beryl Ethel Hovious. Beryl died November 30, 1993 in Mooresville, Indiana at age 87.

To Frank Ballinger, founder of my favorite "Award Winning" Website " Bonnie and Clyde's Hideout." This truly an extraordinary site which I consider to be the best Bonnie and Clyde site on the internet to date. You can view the site on my "Amazing outlaw links" page.

Special thanks to Jim Adams, founder of the one and only "Award Winning" Baby Face Nelson Website.

Special thanks to Bob Livesey, author of the extraordinary book "On The Rock." An amazing story about "Public Enemy Number One" Alvin Karpis, and his twenty five years in Alcatraz Penitentiary. Also check out his website at "Little Brick Schoolhouse" website located an my "Amazing outlaw links" page. Thank you for your support and friendship.

Special thanks to Tom Hollatz, Author of GANGSTER HOLIDAYS, The Lore and Legends of the Bad Guys and several other outstanding books. Tom is extremely knowledgeable of Wisconsin's history and the many outlaws who came to the beautiful Northwoods. Thank you for the special contributions to Dillinger, The Hidden Truth, The John Dillinger Website, and for your valued friendship. Your the best!

To Mario Gomes founder of the truly fascinating website "My Al Capone Museum" also located on my "Amazing links page." I consider Mario Gomes to be an expert on Al Capone and one of the biggest collectors of historical memorabila. Thank you.

Special thanks to Rick "MadDog" Mattix, who co-authored with William Helmer the book "Public Enemies: America's Criminal Past, 1919-1940. I'd like to also thank Rick Mattix for sharing his highly valued knowledge on Charley Arthur "Pretty Boy Floyd," and John Dillinger.

I'd also like to thank Dr. Horase Naismith jr. for his valuable contribution of knowledge on outlaws of the nineteen twenties and thirties, and for the Dillinger death mask photo.

Special thanks to Wiliam Helmer for his kind contributions, support and for his very resourceful book "Dillinger, the untold story.

Thanks to Lori Hyde, the founder of two outstanding "Award Winning" websites "John Dillinger Scrapbook" and "The Forgotten Harry Pierpont."

To the late Joe Pinkston of "The John Dillinger Historical Wax Museum," for all his many outstanding achievements, for all the documentation, photographs, rare interviews, expert advice he contributed and for the priceless devoted friendship we shared.

Joe Pinkston's death was a great loss to criminal history. He devoted his life to correcting the myths surrounding the life of John Dillinger. Never again will there be a Historian like Joe Pinkston. He interviewed more people who knew John Dillinger (who have since passed on) than any other Writer in history.

Joe Pinkston died June 10,1996 but he will not be forgotten. There is a dedication to Pinkston, along with my great Aunt Beryl Ethel Hovious and my son Keith Stewart in my book Dillinger,The Hidden Truth.

In memory of Bob Harvey who died October 1, 1999 in Greencastle, Indiana. He was 86 years old. Bob was a very close friend of the Dillinger family for many years.

I would also like to give thanks to Gordon Sayres who died December 19, 1999 in Greencastle, Indiana. Gordon was a witness to the famous Greencastle Robbery on October 23, 1933.

Many thanks to Sandy Jones of the John Dillinger Historical Society for sharing the rare John Dillinger Photograph and for his extreme knowledge on John Dillinger, and Bonnie & Clyde.

To Tony Brucia of "Partners In Crime" (PIC), whom I am grateful too for all his support and contributions which I continue to appreciate. Thank you

I would like to send out a very special thanks to Paul Rosa for his contribution from his amazingly rare collection of newspapers and magazines.

I would also like to thank Jeff King, Author or the book, The Life and Death of Pretty Boy Floyd. The book is published by Kent State University Press at 1-800-247-6553.

To Robbie Wonder, another member of the Charlie Kerr Gang, and an associate of the Crown Point Tour.

To Big Don Fuller, my main website advisor, researcher and designer of the famous "Clown Point" T-shirt.
