Bugs Moran

George Clarence "Bugs" Moran was born Adelard Cunin on August 21, 1891 according to his biographer (see BugsMoran.net in External links at the end of this article), and died in Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary, February 25, 1957. He was a Chicago Prohibition-era gangster born in St. Paul, Minnesota. Moran, of Polish-Irish descent, moved to the North side of Chicago when he was 19 and was affiliated with several gangs while being incarcerated three times before turning 21. At his first major arrest, he gave the name "George Miller." Arrested again later, he did not want to use the same name, and identified himself as "George Clarence Moran." This name stayed with him, though he used several other aliases at one time or another.
