The National Law Enforcement Museum is thrilled to announce the recent acquisition of a unique and impressively documented collection of photographs that once belonged in the collection of Dr. Stanley Burns, of The Burns Archive. Thanks to the donation by Alice Dana in honor of Dr. Burns, the Museum now boasts photographs that document numerous events from law enforcement history, including Queen Elizabeth’s first visit to the United States (in 1957), Fidel Castro’s visit to the United States (in 1959), various officers on duty during the 1970s, and a range of high profile murder cases from the 1950-70s.
