Feb. 4, 1920: Harry Raymond resigns as secret service operator for Police Chief George K. Home because of criticism over his [presumably Raymond’s] appointment.  It’s a bit difficult to determine precisely what happened. At this point in his career, Raymond was investigating labor organizers, radicals and pretty much anyone who was considered subversive and unpatriotic. In fact, he continued working with the LAPD as a private detective well into 1920.
