Annotation Allan Pinkerton began life in a Glasgow, Scotland, slum but rose to wealth and fame in America as the founder of a detective agency that was the nineteenth-century equivalent of the FBI. A study in paradox, Pinkerton was a militant labor organizer who later opposed the labor movement, a conservative radically opposed to slavery, and a domestic tyrant who championed a woman's right to be a detective. For grades 5-8 and older readers.
