Meet the Author

Author, historian, and journalist Richard Lindberg was born and raised in Chicago, the backdrop for ten earlier books all dealing with aspects of the city’s history, politics, crime, ethnicity, and sport.
Over the course of a twenty-five-year writing career, Lindberg served as head writer and senior editor for the Edgar Award–winning, six-volume Encyclopedia of World Crime,
published in 1990. As editor of the Illinois Police & Sheriff’s News for six years, Lindberg cast a searchlight on many controversial issues within the law enforcement community. He presently serves as marketing director for Search International, a worldwide investigations and research firm headquartered in the Chicago suburbs.
Among his ten published volumes is “To Serve and Collect: Chicago Politics and Police Corruption From the Lager Beer Riot to the Summerdale Scandal.” It is the first history of the Chicago Police Department to appear in book form since 1887. The volume was subsequently released in paperback by Southern Illinois University Press in 1998.
In addition, Lindberg has served the Chicago White Sox as their official team historian since 1985. In this capacity, he has appeared before numerous fan groups, assisted the team in various marketing and promotional campaigns, conducted statistical research, and authored numerous articles and publications. In 1988, he acted as a historical consultant to John Sayles’s film crew during the production of the motion picture Eight Men Out.
Over the years, Lindberg’s byline has appeared in numerous publications including the Chicago Tribune Magazine, Chicago History, Inside Chicago Magazine, Screen Magazine, The Reader, U.S.A. Today magazine, and others.
As an author and Chicago historian, Rich has been featured on various TV and radio programs of local and national origin including A&E’s American Justice, CBS News
Overnight, the Travel Channel, The Hidden History of Chicago, and History’s Mysteries for the History Channel. He is a member of the Chicago Crime Commission, the Illinois Academy of Criminology, the Chicago Press Veterans, and is a past president of the Society of Midland Authors.
Mr. Lindberg participated in the development of an interactive visual display depicting significant events from Chicago history. The exhibit was unveiled atop the Skydeck of the Sears Tower in April 2000.
