Ezra Pound’s mugshot

On May 3rd, 1945, at the tail end of World War II, Ezra Pound turned himself in to the American military for his involvement with Mussolini’s government. He was arrested, and tried for treason. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and spent the next twelve years in an asylum. Considering it could’ve been the death penalty, he got a pretty good deal.
