The 1964 Robbery of the American Museum of Natural History

Fifty years ago, Jack Murphy (a.k.a., “Murf the Surf”) and Allan Kuhn stole the Star of India sapphire, the DeLong Star ruby, and fistfuls of diamonds and emeralds. Vanity Fair looks back on the robbery, and where the two jewel thieves are now. Its a long article, but worth the read for those interested in true crime, or just unusual history.
