Award-winning Cable author, James Brakken, will present his latest book, Alias Ray Olson: The Complete Story Behind the 1939 Chequamegon Forest Manhunt. Alias Ray Olson is a 300-page, illustrated novel about the life and death of August Buelo, also known as Ray Olson. Brakken’s novel is based closely on 1939 newspaper reports, interviews, and court documents.
“Olson was known to have tampered with illegal slot machines in area taverns,” said
Brakken. “He became a significant character in Wisconsin’s “gangster history”
in June, 1939, when he was accused by a sheriff’s deputy of using stolen
license plates. After a downtown Hayward car chase, he escaped by taking to the
woods along the Namakagon River, northeast of town. Later, near the Chippewa
Flowage, two deputized citizens assisting the Sawyer County sheriff were shot
and killed. Accused, Olson took to the woods, beginning Wisconsin’s largest
ever manhunt. The two-week ordeal saw a ragtag posse of over 200 deputized
citizens, sheriff departments from four counties, and the FBI hunting for Olson
in the Chequamegon Forest,” Brakken added.
This program is free to attend. Books will be available for purchase.
