Last of 'Untouchables,' Wolff dies at age 95
MASON (AP) - Albert H. Wolff, the last surviving member of Eliot Ness' group of U.S Treasury' agents known as the "Untouchables," died Saturday. He was 95.
Wolff was a resident of Mason in southwest Ohio.
The "Untouchables," named for their unwillingness to take bribes from mob bosses such as Al Capone, were portrayed in a television show and the Paramount Pictures film "The Untouchables."
Wolff was a technical consultant during filming of the 1987 film and showed actor Kevin Costner how officers walked and held a gun during that time period. Wolff also served in the Bureau of Narcotics and with the Internal Revenue Service. In 1945, he retired from public service and entered the restaurant business in Chicago.
Wolff is survived by two sons, Howard, of Northfield, Ill., and Robert, of California; a daughter; Gloria Annenberg of Blue Ash; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
Services will be held in Skokie, Ill., with burial in Chicago. The day of the funeral was not known.
