    Patty Hearst Wanted Poster Leaflet. The granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, Patty Hearst gained notoriety in 1974 when, after being kidnapped and held for ransom by the Symbionese Liberation Army, she ultimately joined her captors in furthering their cause, and was apprehended after robbing a bank robbery with other SLA members. (She was imprisoned for almost two years before her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter.) This 8.5 x 11" mailing from the Justice Department, dated April 19, 1974, lists Hearst as being sought after initially as a material witness in the April 15, 1974 robbery, along with four other SLA members. In Very Fine condition with mild wear, a little toning, and two heavy horizontal mailing creases.
