Lulu White, the self-styled “Diamond Queen” of the demi-monde, and the country’s “Handsomest Octoroon,” was Storyville’s most notorious madam. White had her share of run-ins with the law. Most often she was arrested for violating laws related to running a house of prostitution or selling liquor without a license; but occasionally she got in trouble for shooting, stabbing, or otherwise violently assaulting someone. These index cards refer to the docket numbers of some of her court cases.
