Arthur B. Pulitzer, a financial entrepreneur in private equity real estate investment, venture capital and start-up enterprises, established numerous successful start-up corporations over his 40 year career. In 1980 a business associate introduced Pulitzer to his brother, a rather colorful character who frequented shady bars (joints) on the Lower East Side New York, Uptown West Side New York and New Jersey. Pulitzer's new acquaintance mentioned that he had many contacts with actual convicts from NY and NJ who were serving time in notorious US prisons.
Having an interest in the lives of inmates, Pulitzer wrote to one who was imprisoned in Nevada, Death Row prisoner. That is the way it all began. Pulitzer currently corresponds with 25+ inmates via letters and phone. He has amassed a small library of personal letters, manuscripts, and even a script written by and/or about these inmates. Since crime doesn't appear to be diminishing in the near future, neither will the number of Pulitzer's incarcerated correspondents. His website: http://www.makemymovie.biz offers these true crime stories for purchase for use in movie and TV production.
