"On This Day in American History"



On March 14, 1950, the FBI’s 10 most wanted list debuts. Director J. Edgar Hoover approves the list after a news story about the "Toughest guys" the FBI wants to nab captures widespread public attention. The aim of the FBI’s new "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list is to publicize particularly dangerous fugitives. Only eight women have appeared on the Ten Most Wanted list. Ruth Eisemann-Schier was the first in 1968. While Schier was in prison, convicted for participating in the kidnapping-for-ransom of land heiress Barbara Jane Mackle, Gene Miller, in collaboration with Mackle, wrote about the crime in "83 Hours Till Dawn". Schier served four years of her sentence and was paroled in 1973 on condition of deportation to her native Honduras.
