1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 18

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: occupational name for a hunter or a huntsman's servant. The second element is Middle English man ‘man’, ‘servant’, while the first is either from Old English hunta ‘hunter’ or Middle English hunte ‘a hunt’. In some cases it is probably from an unattested Old English personal name, Huntmann (a compound of hunta ‘hunter’ + mann ‘man’).
