PDM Business card.

In 1974, Gacy decided he wanted to go into business for himself. He began a contracting

Incorporated. He hired young teenage boys to work for him.

Gacy on one of his party's.

Gacy organized memorable barbecue parties in which he invited all those close to him.
On one occasion more than three hundred guests showed up to attend one of Gacy’s
parties. The two that were attended by the most people were a luau theme party
and a Western theme party.

Gacy, a construction contractor, liked to think of himself as a player in local politics.

First Lady Rosalynn Carter poses with serial killer John Wayne Gacy (second from left) in May, 1978,
about seven months before police started digging up bodies buried under his house.

The First Lady was in Chicago to celebrate Polish Constitution Day. In the photograph, Gacy wore an "S"
pin apparently issued by the Secret Service to identify those cleared to be on the reviewing
stand. At the time, Gacy was almost done with his killing spree.

Later, lawyers for Gacy included Rosalynn Carter on the list of more than 150 potential defense
witnesses at his trial. The entry read, "Mrs. James Carter, White House, Washington , D.C."
But she was never called to testify at Gacy's trial.
