James 'Whitey' Bulger
Probably the most notorious Boston gangster, James Bulger was born in 1929 in Dorchester and grew up in South Boston. His shock of platinum-blond hair earned him the nickname "Whitey."
He worked hand-in-hand with FBI agents, ratting out his mob rivals in exchange for protection. When the partnership unraveled, he disappeared.
Wanted for 19 murders, he was a fugitive for 16 years before he was captured in Southern California in June.
