Pretty Boy Floyd (the Outlaw)
Charles Arthur Floyd born in Georgia in 1904 first came to the attention of the authorities after stealing money from a post office at age 18. In 1925 he was jailed for a payroll robbery and paroled in 1929. Upon his release he went on his merry way, robbing Missouri banks and vowing never to be taken alive. To Missouri — Kansas, Ohio and Indiana banks were added to his name — such was the ripe pickens in the 1930s for one crazy machine-gun wielding Pretty Boy Floyd.
The moniker ‘Pretty Boy’ was given to him by a one time girlfriend. Floyd was to become none too happy with it.
