The Mob's Worst Year: 1957

Vol. 1, Issue 1, Sept. 2008 Contents
Feature article
Part 1 of 2

Fifty years ago, lawmakers, enforcement officials
and the American public finally became aware
of the depth and breadth of the Mafia underworld.

The Mob's Worst Year

by Thomas Hunt

"A single year changed everything for the American Mafia.
"Aided by vice and extortion income, by the arrival of vast numbers of Sicilian and southern Italian victims already practiced in deference to an outlaw class and by periodic rejuvenating shake-ups of its organization, the Mafia in the United States rapidly grew in wealth and power from its 19th Century origins through the first half of the 20th Century. The organization's resources and influence might have continued to grow unchecked but for the events of 1957."

Capone's triggerman kills Michigan cop

Vol. 1, Issue 1, Sept. 2008 Contents Feature article
'Killer' Burke links Valentine's Massacre with Berrien County
Capone's triggerman
kills Michigan cop
by Chriss Lyon
Fred Burke"Strong links between the Chicago underworld and Berrien County, Michigan, came to light in the aftermath of the February 14, 1929, St. Valentine's Day Massacre. "Before that slaughter, Berrien County had little obvious connection with Chicago mobsters other than visits by Al Capone. The Chicago gang boss was known to reserve entire floors at the Whitcomb Hotel in St. Joseph, to attend functions at the Hotel Vincent ini Benton Harbor, to partake in the fare of Benton Harbor's "Little Italy" and to stay occasionally at various area residences."

Six and a half pages article body Half page of endnotes 11 grayscale photos.

(CORRECTION: In our sidebar story - Page 22 - on the victims of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, we reported that James Clark was the brother-in-law of gang boss George "Bugs" Moran. The relationship was reported in the press accounts of the period. However, crime historian Rick Mattix tells us Clark and Moran were unrelated.)

his role in 1891 anti-Mafia lynch-mob

"Sirs: I have read in the past many versions of the now famous Mafia affair, most of which were incorrect. I have never written anything about it, as I knew many of the squad were still alive and would resent it, but now that most of us are dead and I am 68, there is little chance of trouble."

Introducing Informer

Informer: The Journal of American Mafia History is a quarterly publication scheduled to begin circulation in fall 2008.

Informer Issue #1The journal was created to satisfy two distinct needs. The first is that of readers like you for reliable information on the American Mafia criminal society. Much of what has appeared in print to date is poorly researched, drearily written or both. You look for and you deserve history that is both interesting and accurate.

The second need is that of superior Mafia historians for a forum worthy of their efforts. Gone are the many of the true crime periodicals of yesteryear, but the drive of historians to uncover and to convey the truth remains as strong as ever.

Along with expertly researched and written historical pieces, we will strive to put the American Mafia in its proper context by presenting a collection of important current events. These news items, based on the best available sources, will be written with an eye to the continuing evolution of the American Mafia.

Informer is edited by Thomas Hunt, a veteran journalist and award-winning author. Articles are written by individuals who have exhibited a determination to uncover the truth and a knack for delivering effective prose.

Monday, June 9, 2008


Informer is published in electronic and print magazine editions. Both are sold and distributed through the MagCloud service. Subscriptions are not provided.

Readers of the electronic edition will need a free PDF format reader to open their issues. Free readers of PDF files are available for various computer systems. The more popular readers are shown below:

Adobe PDF Reader
(Windows, Linux, Mobile, Mac)
Foxit Reader
(Windows, Linux, Mobile)
Apple Safari Web Browser
(Windows, Mac)

Select issues of Informer are available as print paperback and hardcover books through Amazon and as ebooks (Kindle and EPUB formats) through Amazon and Google Play Books.

Policy for article/photo submissions

The journal publisher reserves the right to reject any submitted item that in his opinion does not meet the standards of the journal.

Feature articles:
  • Feature article length will vary from a minimum of about 2,500 words. The allowable article length will be determined in large part by the historical importance of the subject matter and the editor's judgment of its value to a particular issue of Informer.
  • Feature articles generally will be expected to include detailed endnotes, citing reliable source(s) for all statements of fact. Writers may elect to refer to their sources within the article body instead of including notes.
  • Statements of opinion within a feature article will be clearly presented as opinion.
  • With the approval of the editor, articles may be presented in an issue as columns, representing the viewpoint and opinions of the writer. These will be formatted differently from feature articles. Columns need not include source citations, but writers of columns may include them. Columns are reserved for writers identified by the editor as having expertise in a subject area.
  • Book excerpt and previously published material may be submitted as a feature article providing the author/submitter holds the copyright for the work or obtains the written consent of the copyright holder for running the material in the journal.
  • Articles will be submitted in an electronic format which meets the mutual needs of the journal publisher and the author. Queries/articles may be emailed to .
  • Prior to acceptance of an article for publication, the article will be checked by the journal editor for accuracy. It will be edited for readability and style. Informer has no specific style requirements, but the editor will ensure that style is appropriate for the subject matter.
  • Upon acceptance, the article’s writer may be offered compensation in the form of payment through the PayPal service, and/or a complimentary print or electronic copy of the issue, and/or advertising discounts. The type and amount of payment will be determined through agreement between the writer and the publisher (some factors influencing the amount of offered compensation will be the existence of photos or other artwork, any previous publication of the submitted article, the originality of the article and the depth of the research that went into it).
  • The writer's acceptance of the offered compensation will entitle the journal publisher to use of the article within a single journal issue - including printed magazine, electronic magazine, printed book and electronic book formats - to use a portion of the article to promote the journal issue through social media, web blogs and other media. Any other uses of the article may be negotiated separately between the publisher and the author.
  • The writer retains all rights to the submitted work beyond the rights conveyed to Informer for publication as described above. While the original form of the article remains the property of the writer, the writer will never make use of the Informer-edited/rewritten version of the article text in any other publication, as the revisions will remain the property of Informer.
Other articles / letters:
  • Smaller articles or letters of about 700-1000 words will be considered for publication.
  • These items should focus on a very narrow subject area.
  • Smaller articles and letters need not include endnotes. However, writers are expected either to describe their sources within the text or to provide the journal editor with a separate list of sources for verification.
  • No compensation other than a by-line will be offered for these small articles and letters.
  • Photographs related to feature articles will be run in such a way as to not interfere with the flow of the article text. If a photograph is run across the width of an entire page, it will occupy the entire page or the very top or very bottom of the page. If it is run at one-column width, it will be run at the top or bottom of the column or it will be placed at the center of the page to allow both columns of text to flow around it.
  • To be included in the journal, photographs must be legally in the public domain, or they must belong to the writer of the related article and be provided to the journal by the writer for publication, or they must qualify for Fair Use by depicting some element of importance to the article. Writers are encouraged to provide source information for submitted images.
