Missouri State Archives, 600 West Main Street, Jefferson City

Open City: True Story of the KC Crime Family details an historical account of the birth and growth of organized crime in Kansas City during the first 50 years of the 20th century. William Ouseley, a retired supervsor of the Organized Crime Squad, Kansas City Field Division, waged a 21-year battle against the modern day Kansas City "crime family." Ouseley's FBI experience makes possible an in-depth analysis of the historical materials that make up this book. Ouseley shares the story of a captive city, unbridled politicians, powerful and colorful mob bosses, gangland murders, racket activities and courageous police officers and reformers.
