30 July 1902 - Patrolman John A. McIntyre  - Patrolman John a McIntyre of the Northwestern district 1724 North Calhoun St. died yesterday morning about 11 o'clock of nervous protestration. He had not been in good health for the past two years, but was stricken on July 4 last and thereafter had not been on duty. He was born in this city 53 years ago, and was the son of the late Michael McIntyre. He was formally deployed in Druid Hill Park. He was appointed to the police force April 4, 1887. Lieut. Carter, who was acting Capt. of the district yesterday, stated that patrolman McIntyre was a very efficient officer and that he had made credible arrests. On December 12, 1892, a pocketbook was snatched from the hands of Mr. Julia Eichelberger at the corner of Lindon and Lafayette Avenue. She reported the case at once to the police, and from the descriptions given, patrolman McIntyre arrested a few hours later Daniel Thomas, John Smith and James Kristen, all black males. Thomas was sentenced to the penitentiary for 18 months, Smith for three years and Kristen for eight years. Patrolman McIntyre was a member of St. Gregory's Catholic Church. He belonged to Eutaw conclave and the Heptasophs into the Catholic benevolent Legion. A widow, who was Miss Katherine Fillmore, and four sons – Frank, Leo, George and Charles McIntyre – survive him

Baltimore Police Historical Society

Baltimore Police Historical Society put the articles found on this site together using research from old newspapers, old books, old photographs, and old artifacts. We rely more heavily on information written at, or near the time of the incidents or events that we are researching. We do not put too much weight on the more recently written historic information, or information that has been written with a biased opinion, or agenda. We will not tell our readers what to think about our past, as much as we will tell a story as it was written with the hopes of our readers will form their own opinions. We tell a story about what happened, and not why it happened. That said, ever so often we might come across a story that to us is so exciting we might express an enthusiasm in our writings. We hope the reader will still form an opinion of their own based on the information written at the time, and not information more recently written that has a so-called "filtered past" or that has been twisted and pulled in the direction of a storyteller's personal feelings or agenda. Please enjoy the site and feel free to write us should you have any questions or information.
