Dutch Schultz (August 6, 1902 - October 24, 1935) was a New York City-area         
gangster of the 1920s and 1930s. Born Arthur Flegenheimer in the Yorkville         
section of Manhattan, he made his fortune in organized crime-related activities   
such as bootlegging alcohol and the numbers racket. Schultz is most famous today   
for the rambling, stream-of-consciousness monologue he gave police in a hospital   
as he lay dying of a gunshot wound.
