James Joseph "Whitey" Bulger, Jr. (born September 3, 1929) is an former crime boss who led the Winter Hill Gang based in Somerville, Massachusetts in the United States. He also served as an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in a controversial arrangement that allowed him to continue his criminal activities. The disclosure in 1997 by The Boston Globe of the involvement of federal agents with Bulger was considered a major embarrassment for the agency.
