Meyer Lansky was a Russian-born mobster with an estimated net worth of $600 million. A primary figure in the development of the "National Crime Syndicate" along with Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky controlled gambling from upstate New York to Las Vegas and Cuba. He is considered one of the instrumental figures in the unification of the criminal network. He passed away in 1983.
Meyer Lansky (born Meyer Suchowljansky; July 4, 1902 - January 15, 1983), known as the "Mob's Accountant", was a Russian-born American organized crime figure who, along with his associate Charles "Lucky" Luciano, was instrumental in the development of the "National Crime Syndicate" in the United States.

Lansky met Bugsy Siegel when he was a teenager. They became lifelong friends, as well as partners in the bootlegging trade, and together with Lucky Luciano, formed a lasting partnership. Lansky was instrumental in Luciano's rise to power by organizing the 1931 murder of Mafia powerhouse Salvatore Maranzano. As a youngster, Siegel saved Lansky's life several times, a fact which Lansky always appreciated. The two adroitly managed the Bug and Meyer Mob despite its reputation as one of the most violent Prohibition gangs.
Lansky was the brother of Jacob "Jake" Lansky, who in 1959 was the manager of the Nacional Hotel in Havana, Cuba.
