In particular the name that comes up is H.H. Holmes, a notorious serial killer who murdered countless young women during the time of the fair, and could be sourced as a downfall in society. Yet, the actions of one man can not be the portrayal of numerous good deeds and positive advancements for the majority of the citizens. There are sick minded people throughout all points in history, and from the eventual arrest and interrogation of Holmes, we as a culture gained insight to the psyche of a deranged man: “...the vague humanness was missing...They later adopted the term “psychopath”...”(Larson 87). Basing modern psychology of the psychotic mind from first cases such as Holmes, is a reason many more killers have been caught or prevented in modern society, and while he was a stain to humanity at the time, he did not ruin the collective robustness of the American
