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. 
1945 · Peace in a Post War World

Age 16

The Yalta Conference was held in Crimea to talk about establishing peace and postwar reorganization in post-World War II Europe. The heads of government that were attending were from the United States, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union. Later the Conference would become a subject of controversy at the start of the Cold War.

Name Meaning

Irish and English:1. nickname for a brave or powerfully built man, from Middle English stout ‘steadfast’. 2. from the Old Norse byname Stútr ‘gnat’, denoting a small and insignificant person. 3. possibly also a habitational name from a minor place named with the Old English element stūt ‘stumpy hillock’, which is found as a component in various Devon place names.
