Lawes moved his wife and young daughters into the wardens mansion at Sing Sing prison. They shared a yard with 1, 096 of the toughest inmates in the world-murderers, rapists, and thieves who Lawes alone believed capable of redemption. Adamantly opposed to the death penalty, Lawes presided over 300 executions.

His progressive ideas shocked many, but he taught the nation that a prison was a community. He allowed a kidnapper to care for his children and a cutthroat to shave him every morning. He organized legendary football games for his boys, and befriended Hollywood greats such as Charlie Chaplin and Humphrey Bogart.

This is A story almost too good to be true, but too true to miss. -Mario Cuomo
