1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 10

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. 
1947 · The Presidential Succession Act

Age 23

The Presidential Succession Act is an act establishing the presidential line of succession. This was a precursor for the Twenty-fifth Amendment which outlines what is to happen when a President is killed, dies, or is unable to fulfill the responsibilities of President.

Name Meaning

English (Kent): of uncertain origin. Reaney suggests that it may be a metonymic occupational name for a fish seller or a baker, from Middle English fagge, Old English facg, which denoted a kind of flatfish, and perhaps also a flat loaf. Another Middle English word fagge apparently denoted a fault in the weave of a piece of cloth.
