Lee Bailey, the Reverend Jim Bakker, Mayflower Madam Sydney Biddle Barrows, the Benson family murders, draft dodger Grover Cleveland Bergdoll, journalist Meyer Berger, anarchist Alexander Berkman, the Black Sox scandal, the Bloomington-Morgan affair, Bonnie and Clyde, Lizzie Borden, and the Burr-Hamilton duel. c.
