In the summer of 1930, a handful of Pittsburgh gambling racketeers went into the dog racing business. They financed and opened a greyhound racing, the Guyasuta Kennel Club in the headlines for six weeks. The track closed permanently after lawsuits and criminal investigations and left in its wake political controversy that contributed to the founding of Fox Chapel Borough. The Rauh Jewish Archives is hosting the illustrated online program, Guyasuta Gangsters, about the Guyasuta Kennel Club with David Rotenstein. This program is free and will be conducted via the Zoom platform. To register, please contact mobsburgh@gmail.com.
