1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 21

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

Jewish (Ashkenazic): from an Anglicized form of a metonymic occupational name for a diamond worker, derived from German Diamant, French and Dutch diamant ‘diamond’, or Yiddish dime(n)t, from medieval Latin diamas, genitive diamantis, and ultimately from Greek adamas ‘unconquerable’, genitive adamantos, a reference to the hardness of the stone.

English: from the rare Middle English female personal name Diamand, derived from Old French diamaunt, diamaund ‘diamond’, found in Middle English as diamound, deamaunt, and deamon. The name may alternatively be a variant of Daymon or a pet form of the Middle English personal name Day , to which the hypocoristic suffix -man has been added.

Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Diamáin ‘descendant of Diamán’, earlier Díomá or Déamán, a diminutive of Díoma, itself a pet form of Diarmaid (see McDermott ).
