February 23, 1956
Los Angeles, California
Ignazio “Jack” Dragna, organized crime boss, dies of a heart attack at 64

Dragna was one of the most successful and least known of the crime bosses, preferring to stay out of the public eye which allowed him to die in prison rather than executed like many other crime bosses of his time. The picture here is his mugshot in 1916.
