Birth: Jul., 1904
Death: Apr. 23, 1934

Special Agent Carter Baum of the FBI was killed in a shootout with the Dillinger gang at Little Bohemia, Wisconsin.


Special Agent W. Carter Baum was shot and killed by the notorious outlaw Baby
Face Nelson while attempting an arrest near Rhinelander, Wisconsin. He and other
officers had obtained information that the gang members were in a lodge at that
location. As they arrived the suspects opened fire with a machine gun and fled
the area.

Special Agent Baum and two officers took a position two miles away and
approached a car one of the officers recognized. However, the car contained Baby
Face Nelson, a member of the Dillinger Gang, who opened fire on them.

Baby Face Nelson was killed in a shootout seven months later in which Special
Agent Samuel Cowley and Special Agent Herman Hollis were also killed.
