Agness "Aggie" Underwood was the epitome of the intrepid girl reporter. Specializing in the crime beat for Los Angeles' Herald-Examiner newspaper in the '30s and '40s, Aggie was a crafty crime-solver who became the first woman editor of a major US newspaper. Writer, historian, and Esotouric guide Joan Renner focuses on two of Underwood's murder stories - one about the strange, unsolved death of movie star Thelma Todd in 1935; the other about a murderess who induced herself into a coma back in 1936 - in a lecture at the Central Library's Taper Auditorium: "Sleeping Beauties; Deranged L.A. Crimes from the Notebook of Aggie Underwood."
