Pyramid Dreams: Pyramid Schemes

Reporter Louis Graham spent more than a year preparing this story of the Memphis Pyramid. He reviewed thousands of letters, statements, contracts and other legal documents left in the wake of the pyramid plans and the collapse of The Pyramid Companies. He interviewed scores of people involved in the project.

Graham, 35, is a special projects reporter who joined The Commercial Appeal in 1979. He has reported extensively about the pyramid and promoter Sidney Shlenker since 1988.
