Description

Alvin Francis Karpis (born Albin Francis Karpowicz; August 10, 1907 - August 26, 1979), a depression era gangster nicknamed "Creepy" for his sinister smile and called "Ray" by his gang members, was a Canadian-born (naturalized American) criminal of Lithuanian descent known for being one of the three leaders of the Barker-Karpis gang in the 1930s. There were only four "public enemies" ever given the title of "Public Enemy #1" by the FBI snd he was the only one to be taken alive. The other three, John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson, were all killed before being captured. He also spent the longest time as a federal prisoner in Alcatraz Prison, serving twenty-six years.
