Jan. 24, 1958

Car dealer H.J. Caruso goes to jail ... A witness in the L. Ewing Scott case attacks a TV cameraman ... Imperial Emperor Bill Hendrix orders the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan to disband ... And The Times leads all U.S. newspapers in total advertising linage. "The Times' 1957 volume of advertising was the largest ever published by an American newspaper in a single year."

That's not Henry J. Caruso, father of L.A. Disneyfier Rick, is it?

--This is indeed Henry J. "H.J." Caruso and as far as I can determine his son is developer Rick Caruso.


RE: Mr. Caruso the elder.

When the LA Times Magazine did a piece on Rick Caruso sometime last year, it did indeed mention the fact that his father had run afoul of the law nearly 50 years back. It seems it's a subject that the younger Caruso speaks very little about.
