Well, there's a few off the streets. Too bad authorities haven't put a dent in it. Well, it's a start. Maybe they'll all stop posting in the forums. Yea, probably not. We'll still be subjected to their stupidity.

The Gaylords were formed in the 20s. Their symbol at that time was a lady with a drippin' pus eye and the other eye was the classic eight ball. The group was formed by Rusty 'ragged edge' Hudson. Hudson was a defector from a notorious New York Gang that dealt in prostitution and politics. Hudson took his name from the Hudson River where many a rival gang member was deep sixed. Hudson wanted out and the only way he got out was on the sneak across state lines in the mid 30s. He found himself in Illinois where he formed the Gaylords. The new symbol was a simple four pointed looking crown. The letters above each point were OTEU. The letters stood for Only Through Education (comes) Understanding. Hudson formed the new group gaining members from reform schools and the streets where kids were abandoned. Hudson's gang grew to over one hundred members and many converts to the gang were sent to colleges and universities. Hudson died in the 40s in a rail accident at the train yard near Wolf road and Lake. Some say Hudson was drunk and sleep leaning on a box car coupler when one came down the hump. Hudson was in the middle, alive, and smoked his last cigarette just before the engineer pulled back the train and the railroad switch man uncoupled the cars. He took his last breath. Hudson was dead and the gang was disbanded. It made a comeback in the mid 60s but was never the same.

The Chicago Gaylords, also known as the Almighty Gaylords, is one of the oldest Chicago street gangs. It originated in the neighborhood of Grand and Noble. The original president of the Gaylords selected the name after reading about the Gaylords in the public library (the Gaillards, later anglicized to Gaylord, were people from Normandy who lived near the Ch√Ęteau Gaillard, constructed by Richard I). They are a part of the People Nation alliance.

Genesis
The Chicago Gaylords began as one of the clubs started by World War II veterans. The majority of the original members were Italian, Irish, Greek, and Mexican American which reflected the population of the Grand and Ogden area at the time, that was known as one of Chicago's "Little Italys." There were many such clubs in Chicago during the post WWII era, and had their own clubhouses and baseball teams. The Gaylord's clubhouse was on the corner of Ohio and Noble Street. At the height of the Gaylords reign they had more than 6000 members, were one of the most powerful gangs in Chicago, and controlled large areas of the city.

Gang expansion
During their peak period in the 1970s, the Chicago Gaylords held sets (or sections) on the North Side, West side and the South Side of Chicago. The West side sections included Ohio and Noble, Ohio and Leclaire and Monticelllo and Augusta. Their South Side sections included Back of the Yards and West Englewood (around 55th & Ashland, Sherman Park), Pilsen (18th & Western), and Bridgeport (Throop Street). Their North Side presence included [Belmont Cragin]Manor Bowl,Reinberg School,Chopin Park,Blackhawk Park,St Gens.Humboldt Park (Moffat & Campbell); Logan Square (Palmer & California, Lawndale & Altgeld); Irving Park (Albany & Byron); Kilbourn Park (Roscoe & Kilbourn); Kelvyn Park (Kilbourn & Wrightwood); Dunham Park (Montrose & Narragansett); Ravenswood (Seeley & Ainslie); and Uptown (Sunnyside & Magnolia, Lawrence & Broadway). During the 1960s through the early 1980s, the Chicago Gaylords experienced tremendous growth and expansion, with sections popping up all over Chicago.

Gang colors
The sets, or sections, started by Kilbourn Park wore black and light blue. Sections started by Palmer street wore black and gray. South Side sections started by the 18th and Western section like 55th and Ashland and Sherman Park wore black and brown.

This is because Nazi Bill from L/A who dont claim it no more and is reputed to be an Aryan Brotherhood soldier committed a Hate Crime in Villa Park 2 houses away from VP PD Chief of polices house back in '03.When he got out he had hooked up with a hooker/escort date chick name of Heather Pittman who is a heroin junky .She is also a Police Informant Heather Pittman operates for the Law and has given testimony about Nazi Bill.I believe he is currently in prison in Indiana.Something happened at the VP cop shop involving the Chief and Guess What he was forced to resign after photos surfaced in Villa Park of him with his penis in hand and several hookers one of which may very well be Heather Pittman.Has anyone seen or heard from Bill?
