RARA-AVIS: period reference

Thu, 14 Jan 1999 08:31:16 -0500 Hello folks!
Here's a question for those more immersed in period details than myself.

The other day I was reading a Peter the Brazen story by Loring Brent (aka
George F. Worts) in a 1931 issue of ARGOSY. The story takes place in Hong
Kong. The writer describes a Mongolian as having "a Chicago gangster's
haircut." Anybody know just what sort of sartorial splendor this might be
describing? Thanks in advance. -- Duane
