Leopold Trebitch lived in St. Louis in the late 1800s/ early 1900s. Little is known about him other than that he was arrested in 1901 shorty after Leon Czolgosz killed president McKinley. At the time Trebitch was squatting in Carondelet and building a shack to live in and host anarchist meetings in that butted up on a cave. When the landowner came to evict him, Trebitch and him fought. In court Trebitch declared himself an anarchist and the Post-Disptach reported that police found anarchist literature in his shack. There is a large biographical gap between his arrest and arraignment and now. Leading up to that point Trebtich was given extra attention by the media and the state since an anarchist had just killed the head of state and his punishment may have reflected the heightened fears around anarchists.
He is the current moderator of The Trebitch Times.
