1957: Bugs Moran, a Chicago Prohibition-era gangster and a rival of Al Capone's crime syndicate, dies of lung cancer at the age of 65 at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. Moran, whose real name was Adelard Cunin, was serving a 10-year sentence for bank robbery when he died. Six members of his gang were infamously gunned down by Capone's men in a Feb. 14, 1929, attack on Chicago's north side that became known as the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre.
