The Chicago Syndicate AKA "The Outfit"


This is a work in progress, but the table below will include Members of the The Chicago "Outfit" who appear in articles within "The Chicago Syndicate". Eventually, each member will have a bio page with links to the articles in which he appears. The gangsters have been split into 3 categories: "Bosses", "Friends of Mine" and "Friends of Ours". It is not intended to be an all-inclusive listing of Outfit Members and Associates, but more of an index for this site. As other members or associates are mentioned in articles, the list will grow. If you have information on any additions or changes that should be made, please let me know.
For those who are not listed, use our custom mobster search bottom at the top of the page.

  1. Dominick "Hunk" Galiano was one of the underbosses who ran the Rush street area. He also managed the famous caberat club "The talk of the town" on Clark street off Division street. He was born January 20,1913. He was gunned down on March 10,1966 in Chicago,Ill on LaSalle street.It started in the back of a restaurant and after being shot 3 to 5 times he still managed to crawl on to the street where he died. 3 people were questioned, one being Jasper Campiese a life long friend. They were questioned and released. No one was ever convicted of the murder. I would like to know where I can get more information and photos on his criminal record.

  3. Dominick was my father.
    Read the front page articles on my fathers murder. Jasper is in them
    They were very close and grew up together.
    He was a known hit man.
    Business before friendship.
    How are you family to Jasper?
    Keep in touch.

  12. Joseph DiVarco was in charge of prostitution on the north side. a woman that I know, who was a prostitute talks about him coming to the hotel where she worked as an employee/prostitute and being taken to one of the rooms for this purpose. there is a lot more to this, and if any one is interested I have 18 pages written up on this matter.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would love to read the 18 pages on Joey DiVarco..
    I remember him as a little girl.
    Does this woman remember Dominick "hunk" Galiano? From the "Talk of the town Cabaret, on Clark street off Division?
    Please get back to me.
    Thank you.

  21. I AM THE PERSON THAT COMMENTED ABOUT THE WOMAN THAT WORKED AT THE EDGEWATER BEACH HOTEL IN 1961. AFTER MANY HOURS OF TALKING TO THIS WOMAN STARTING IN SEPT. OF 2004. I MARRIED THIS WOMAN IN 1959 IN CHICAGO. WE WERE DIVORCED BY DEC. OF 1961. I LIVED WITH HER FOR 10 MONTHS, FROM OCT. 1961 TO 4 JULY OF 1961.I WAS IN THE SERVICE AND DISCHARGED IN SEPT. OF 1960. AFTER MANY HOURS OF CONVERSITION I ASKED HER WHY AND HOW SHE GOT INTO PROSTITUTION. THE STORY THAT SHE TOLD ME STARTED IN THE SUMMER OF 1956 AND WENT ON UNTIL THE END OF 1965. SHE MARRIED SOME POOR JERK THAT DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING ON HER. I WAS THEW FIRST ONE. SHE HOPES TO MAKE SOME MONEY ON A BOOK DEAL. THATS ALL I CAN SAY UNLESS YOU CONTACT ME.

  22. I found this site while researching info on my Dad. My grandparents lived in the Edgewater Beach Hotel & I never knew the history that the above poster mentioned. I babysat for Alan Rosenberg when I was a teenager & he was murdered in 1967 & left in a Cadillac on Ainslie St. My Dad did time with "Momo" & he told me about those days. I grew up in an age of paranoia, so its surreal to be posting on here!! I am looking for info on the Jewish fellas that were part of the "Chicago Outfit" in the 1955-1070 era.

  26. Does anyone here have information on a strip joint called "Nini's Remember When - Revue" located on Chestnut right around the corner from "The Candy Store" on Rush street in Chicago? I was in a jazz band, and we were one of the last live groups to play in a strip club in Chicago. I was very young. From what I heard, it was really a front for a gambling operation in the basement. Makes sense since there was never anyone in the joint and 80% of the people that came in were ushered into a backroom. I tried to go back there once and it was suggested to me that it wouldn't be a good idea to try and find out. We didn't work there long after that.

  27. chicago police are work for a big chicago crime ring who setup people with fake witnesses, fake police reports, planted evidence and they use scanners to listen on people cell phones to find out where their at, im sure theyve done many times its so easy to set somebody up, the crooked cops have to be their friends their crooked as shit.

    I worked for AT&T the phone company for over 9 years, I was the head and only mechanic for a fleet of over 80 vehicles worth million of dollars and I made very good money and had good benefits, Crooked Chicago MOB cops got me MOBBED stalked and harrassed for over year and half at the garages they made the techs into my enemies, they made up I was homosexual and lots of other nasty rumors that destroyed my name, I used to be friends with all of my coworkers and never had trouble with any of them for over 5 years before the the crooked MOB Cops came along, Ive been trying to find a lawyer to sue the crooked cops for over a year and half and still cant find any lawyer, even though the MOB Cops broke many civil rights laws, I have millions of dollars of damages and still no lawyers, now Im looking for the a lawyer to sue AT&T for a year and half of harassment and wrongfull termination, Ive been searching for a lawyers for months and still cant find any, I did find 2 lawyers and had 2 contracts for services offered for the AT&T case, a few days later after the contracts were given out, I tried to contact them, they never answered emails or phone calls the crooked MOB Cops got to them to.

    All this trouble started after we rented to a guy named Leonard Cox who we found out later with a background check was a burglar,auto thief, drug addict , male prostitute, he rented my basement and made false police reports and so did his fake witness( I do have audio tapes of him that proves they both made fake police reports) at the same time he was living their, their was a fire right in back of our garage and right before he moved in their was burglary right in front of are house too one of my neighbors. Then the Chicago crime ring committed more crimes I found out later, using the their cell phone SCANNER to find out my location to commit or make more fake police reports to try to frame me.




    All they have to do is find Leonard Cox in oregon and he'll snitch on everybody but the crooked cops aint doing that their working for their friends.


    In Chicago the cops are in the MOB they do not go after the white MOB thats their friends, their trying to set me up for a 10 year convict male prostitution on welfare, they are trying to set me up for the worlds DUMBEST crimes you will ever hear about, I have taken many IQ tests and my is IQ way above average and would never waste my time doing brain less bull shit after this freak moved in, this is the dumbest bull shit i ever heard. Chicago cops are the crookedest, dumbest, racists, incompetent lowlifes I have ever seen. Every body watch in Chicago for the MOB with the scanner and fake reports every where.

  33. Does anyone have any information on a man that used the names Walter or Junior Bratton. He was active in the Outfit in the 1960's and 1970's and maybe before and after those times. He was born in the late 1920's so he would be in his early 80's right now. He was a truck driver, mechanic and chef. Probably a lower level guy, he carried 2 pearl pistols and was of Cherokee Indian descent. If anyone has any info, please post it on the board or some contact information where I can reach you.

  40. This is a shot in the dark. I'm looking for information on Edward Gordon around the time of 1933-34-35. My grandmother was married to him they lived at 1514 Ardmore - Edgewater. Don't know a lot about what happened but my mother was born in 34 shortly thereafter he disappeared and she started going by the last name Brown no marriage certificates for Gordon or brown and there was always talk of a mob Alias he was an auto parts salesman and that was the reason she started using brown. Most of my family is gone and they would not talk about it when they were alive. Any information would be helpful.
