Purple Gang Head
Abe Bernstein, 76
Abe Bernstein, said to be the
brains behind the Prohibition-era
Purple Gang, died March 7 in his
suite at the Sheraton - Cadillac
Hotel. He was 76.
Bernstein's "career" began on
old Hastings Street; he and the
neighborhood boys weren't "really
bad boys," so goes the legendary
statement, "just a little purple."
The gang was involved in murder
and extortion, among other crimes,
but Bernstein never went to prison
for a major crime. Nevertheless,
he was arrested often, and his rec-'
ord showed a few convictions for
misdemeanors. Bernstein was con-
sidered a peacemaker between the
