    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

    English: habitational name from any of the many places called Hinton (for example, in Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Hampshire, and Northamptonshire). Some of the placenames, such as those in Northamptonshire, Shropshire, and Herefordshire, derive from Old English hīna, genitive plural form of hīwan ‘household, religious community’, + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’ (compare Hine as the first element). Others, such as those in Gloucestershire, Somerset, and Hampshire, derive from Old English hēan, dative form of hēah ‘high’ + tūn.
