Martin J. McGee, chief inspector for the U.S. Postal Service's Chicago office inthe 1970s, was the first postal inspector here to investigate cases under a little-known, but later extremely effective, statute to prosecute white collar criminals.His mail fraud investigations dealt mostly with corrupt bankers and credit cardcompanies. But his work paved the way for federal authorities to use mail fraudstatutes to successfully prosecute public officials, from former Illinois Gov. OttoKerner to the onetime floor leader of the Chicago City Council, Thomas Keane.Mr. McGee, a resident of River Forest, died Thursday, Jan. 13, at Oak ParkHospital after a stroke. He was 85."There's a mail fraud charge that goes back to the 1920s or earlier, but it washow they used it. They came up with ways that had never been used before,"said Richard Makarski, former chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. attorney'soffice in Chicago.By hiring eager young investigators and urging them to delve into the obscurestatute, Makarski said, Mr. McGee transformed the office from one thatinvestigated thefts of items from envelopes to one that would eventually take partin premier political corruption cases.But Mr. McGee was equally at home flipping burgers on a grill won at a church
