100 Years of Made Men


The names, faces and backgrounds vary. The dates span more than a century. The crimes range from bootlegging to illegal gambling, drug trafficking to murder. Each story is different, yet there is a common thread: Men, and occasionally women, lured by money, respect and power, joined forces to fleece America – and eliminate anyone standing in their way. This hall of shame, this wall of infamy, profiles a diverse cross-section of the most notorious figures from more than 100 years of Mob history. From household names such as James “Whitey” Bulger to more obscure figures such as “Cocaine Godmother” Griselda Blanco, this display reflects the multifaceted nature of organized crime.
