Doc Savage's oft-misunderstood "Crime College" Modern readers unanimously find Doc's Crime College pretty creepy and sinister.

Doc Savage's oft-misunderstood "Crime College"

It's a place where bad guys either get an operation to remove their memories, or are retrained psychologically to hate crime (exactly what the Crime College did wasn't that clear, and the hints varied on the novel). To modern eyes, the Crime College sounds like brainwashing, or a lobotomy, or both. It doesn't exactly help Doc keeps the place a secret. Doc's Crime College crops up in other places in pop culture, never taken at face value, usually to talk about how disturbing the implications of it are. The B-Mod devices in "Squadron Supreme" were based on it, as was the memory wipe for criminals on Babylon 5. I've always said the Crime College is the single most misunderstood element of the entire Doc Savage canon.

What's more, the 1920s and 1930s were defined by the shellshocked attempt to understand the hideous human evil of World War I. Bigger Than Life: The Creator of Doc Savage - Marilyn Cannaday. In this biography, Marilyn Cannaday recreates the life and times of Lester Dent, a little-known giant of the pulp magazine era of U.S. popular literature.

Bigger Than Life: The Creator of Doc Savage - Marilyn Cannaday

From 1929 to 1959, Dent wrote and sold millions of words of fiction—wildly colorful action stories with sea, air and western settings, adventure and suspense novels. His most famous serial character was supehero Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, who battled crime throughout the pages of a ten-cent pulp magazine in the thirties and forties.
