1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 24

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963. 

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places so named in Staffordshire and Sussex. The former was named in Old English as ‘open country (feld) where madder (mæddre) grows’, while the latter was named as ‘open country where mayweed (mægðe) grows’. The surname is now most common in Nottinghamshire.
