A twenty-one typed pages dated from October 20 to November 5, 1954, containing detailed reports on the movements of Marilyn Monroe and her friends and suspected love interests. The pages are prepared for "City Detective and Guard Service" on the subject of "Dimaggio****Monroe."
They provide detailed accounts of the movements of Monroe and Hal Schaefer, Monroe's vocal coach for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Fox, 1953). While Schaefer was watched closely, the detectives noted everyone with whom Monroe interacted.
The entry dated October 24, 1954, reads in part, "…7:50 P.M. The Subject [earlier identified as Marilyn Monroe] arrived at 1312 Harper, parked and entered same. There was another auto parked in the drive-way, a 1950 Cadillac Conv. Lic. # 5N69948 Calif., registered to Jane Wyman--360 N. Camden Dr., Bev. Hills. Someone was playing the piano in the house. The husband of Jane Wyman is John Karger (he plays the piano), and it was our oppinnion [sic.] that Karger was in the house."
Joe Dimaggio hired private detectives to track Monroe's movements, as he feared she was being unfaithful. The detectives' observations state that one of the "operators" called DiMaggio and they noted his car in front of the building where the famous "wrong door raid" took place on the night of November 5, 1954.
