1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 5

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. 


Age 21

United States military forces play a leading role against North Korean and Chinese troops in Korean War.

Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Liam, Kieran, Dermot, Donovan, Brigid, Caitlin, Siobhan, Aileen, Colm, Conley, Conor.

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Loingsigh ‘descendant of Loingseach’, a personal name meaning ‘mariner’ (from long ‘ship’). This is now a common surname in Ireland but of different local origins, for example chieftain families in counties Antrim and Tipperary, while in Ulster and Connacht there were families called Ó Loingseacháin who later shortened their name to Ó Loingsigh and also Anglicized it as Lynch.

Irish (Anglo-Norman): from de Línse, a Gaelicized form of the Norman French name de Lench, deriving from one of the manors named Lench in Worcestershire. The placename derives from Old English hlenc ‘hill-side’.
