Material presented on The American Mafia history website ( and was gathered through decades of research into the history of American organized crime. A childhood interest in the subject blossomed into a full-time obsession in the late 1990s, when I began organizing collected newspaper clippings, notebook pages and index cards. That effort gave rise to this website in September 2002. The website is more of a process than it is a document. Very often new historical data becomes available and causes old assumptions to be revised or abandoned. Over the past few years, many underworld legends appearing on these pages have given way to more defensible statements. And other revisions are sure to be made in the months and years ahead. It is a pleasure to be able to share my interest with you. I welcome your emailed comments, questions, criticisms. I hope that the site is useful to you and that you check in from time to time to see what is new. Copyright © 2011, Thomas Hunt. All rights reserved.

Update begins gradually

Visitors to The American Mafia website may begin to notice changes to certain pages. These are part of the overall site update. Various revised pages are now taking their places on the site. Some aspects of these pages - typestyles and formatting - may not look just right yet. The site's "stylesheet," which deals with these aspects, will be the final element to be brought online. This is necessary so that the older pages remain readable.
