Famous Gangsters: Dutch Schultz.Dutch Schultz was a New York City-area German-Jewish American mobster of the 1920s and 1930s who made his fortune in organized crime-related activities such as bootlegging alcohol and the numbers racket.
Virginia Hill (1916-1966) was one of the most famous female mobsters. She was a courier for the national crime syndicate, moving thousands of dollars from one mobster to the next, even overseas. She purportedly slept with many gangsters, but was Bugsy Siegel's girlfriend. She fled to Austria after the Government went after her for tax evasion. She died on the ski slopes of Salzburg, Austria after ingesting a heavy dose of sleeping pills. She was 49 years old.
