Scope and Contents:
"Red Bandanna" is a term used by the media (and Gypsies?) as an alternative form, referring to the group of Gypsy clients of Steve Kaslov. Kaslov and his associates incorporated the "Red Dress Gypsy Association" in Paterson, New Jersey in 1928; he was referred to in the press as "King of the Red Dress (Red Scarf or Red Bandanna) Gypsies." Most of this group were Rusuya Gypsies with Russian backgrounds.
