Clyde Chestnut Barrow, also known as Clyde Champion Barrow, (March 24, 1909 – May 23, 1934) was an American criminal and “Clyde” of Bonnie and Clyde fame. The two traveled the central United States with their gang during the Great Depression, robbing people and killing when cornered or confronted. Their exploits captured the attention of the American public during the “Public Enemy Era,” between 1931 and 1935. Though known today for their dozen-or-so bank robberies, the duo most often preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and several civilians. The couple were eventually ambushed and killed by law officers near Sailes, Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Their exploits were revived and cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde. (Source + full bio: Wikipedia.org)
