 Carlo Gambino FBI Files

FREE - Cuba - United States Secret Diplomacy Documents (1961-1977)

CARLO GAMBINO FBI FILES

1,011 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., covering Carlo Gambino. Gambino was investigated by the FBI for various criminal violations. In 1970, Gambino, said to be the "Boss of Bosses" was described as the most powerful racketeer in the country. Portions have been blacked out to protect confidential sources. Reputed to be the head of the Five Families of New York from 1957 to 1976, Gambino was born in Sicily in 1902, and immigrated to the United States in 1921. When Albert Anastasia was killed in 1957, allegedly by Gambino with approval of Vito Genovese, Gambino became head of the Family. The government made serious attempts beginning about 1970 to bring Gambino to trial on hijacking charges and deport him for entering the country illegally in 1921. However, his severe heart trouble, which plagued him for years, prevented trial. Files include detailed reporting of electrocardiograms given to Gambino. Gambino died of heart failure in 1976.
