Welcome to the Lloyd Sealy Library subject guide on the topic of Gangsters. Organized crime and gangsters have had a long history in the United States.  If you are interested in learning more about this era, the library has a variety of resources available.

(NOTE: This guide will cover some of the more famous gangs, gangsters, and organized crime rather than all gangs and gangsters in American history.)
