Dear Mr. Natale,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Notorious Offenders Files, 1919 - 1975 and Notorious Offender Files, 1920 - 2010 in the Records of the Bureau of Prisons (Record Group 129) that include files related to many notable organized crime figures. For more information, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at Archives2reference@nara.gov.
There may be additional records based on where a prisoner was incarcerated. For example, we also located Comprehensive Case Files of Former Inmates Incarcerated at U.S. Penitentiary, Alcatraz, California, ca. 3/1975 - ca. 1988 (documenting ca. 1910 - ca. 1988) and Prisoner Identification Photographs , 1934 - 1963 for Alcatraz in Record Group 129. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at San Francisco (RW-SB) at email@example.com. We also located Inmate Case Files, 7/3/1895 - 11/5/1957 in Record Group 129 which include files for inmates at the US Penitentiary, Leavenworth. For more information about these files contact the National Archives at Kansas City (RM-KC) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Records for other federal prisons are kept in the National Archives regional facility that has custody of the records for that state. Please note that not all inmate case files and prisoners identification photographs were retained as permanent records. If you do not know where the person you are researching was incarcerated, you may contact RM-KC, which has a copy of the Bureau of Prisons microfilm publication entitled "Index to Released Federal Prisoners, 1911-1974."
In addition, we located the record series Photographs Related to Various Criminal Cases of the FBI, ca. 1908 - ca. 1975 in the Records of the Bureau of Investigation (Record Group 65) that includes mug shots of a number of famous criminals. For more information about these records, please email the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS) at email@example.com.
Next, you may be interested in FBI investigation files. To request FBI files, first file a FOIA request with the FBI. If the file has been transferred to the National Archives, the FBI should provide you with the file number and other information necessary to locate the file.
Plus, you may be interested in the Department of Justice investigation and litigation files. We searched the Catalog and located 26 record series in the Records of the Department of Justice (Record Group 60) in the files relating to violations of anti-racketeering laws. Files relating to organized crime may also be found in other categories of Record Group 60 files, depending on which crime was being investigated and prosecuted. For more information about these records, please contact RDT2 at Archives2reference@nara.gov.
If you are interested in trial records, records of federal courts may be found in the various National Archives regional facilities. For more information about court records, see https://www.archives.gov/research/court-records.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from the various NARA units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Some mugshots and other photographs of inmates have been digitized and are available online using the National Archives Catalog. Please search the Catalog for the names of the specific persons you are researching. Be advised that just because a name does not show up in the Catalog, it does not indicate that we do not have a file for the person.
Please note that the National Archives only has federal records. If a criminal was instead arrested, tried, and incarcerated by a state government, those records may be in the custody of the state archives for that particular state.
Finally, some mugshots are available on Wikimedia Commons at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Mug_shots_of_people_of_the_United_States.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
