Royal Ripper Rumor Began In 1930's

Post by Karen on Tue 2 Mar 2010 - 1:26

Many veteran Ripperologists have stated that it was Dr. Thomas Stowell who "created" the Royal as Ripper theory in 1970, but that is an inaccuracy, as stated here by someone who grew up in London in the 1930's:

Ripping yarn.(Letter to the Editor)
History Today, January, 2006 by Nicholls, Roger; Cook, Andrew

I refer to the article by Andrew Cook on the Duke of Clarence (November 2005). He claims the story of 'Eddy' and Jack the Ripper was 'created' by Dr Thomas Stowell. This is absurd, as the idea of the connection between the Duke and the Ripper was widespread when I was young in the 1930s. Dr Cook has to rely on printed material, I suppose, but there must be many people like me who have memories of the story before the article in the Criminologist.

Update: Since posting this article, it would appear that the website has gone 404 on us. Maybe if you contact the administrator, he/she may permit you to see the article and letters to the editor again.
