Herbert Asbury

Herbert Asbury (September 1, 1889 – February 24, 1963) was an American journalist and writer best known for his books detailing crime during the 19th and early-20th centuries, such as ''Gem of the Prairie: An Informal History of the Chicago Underworld'', ''The Barbary Coast: An Informal History of the San Francisco Underworld'', ''Sucker's Progress: An Informal History of Gambling in America'' and ''The Gangs of New York''.

''The Gangs of New York'' was later adapted for film as Martin Scorsese's ''Gangs of New York'' (2002). However, the film adaptation of ''Gangs of New York'' was so loose that ''Gangs'' was nominated for "Best Original Screenplay" rather than as a screenplay adapted from another work.
