The Bowie Blade reported that "Greaser" gangs existed in many of the area towns, including Belair, and a "considerable rivalry" existed between the various Greaser factions at the time. The term "Greaser" is derived from the slick, greasy hair style that was popular among the gang members. According to one source interviewed by the Blade, Greaser gangs were "composed of high school drop-outs and other toughs."
