1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 4

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 17

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

French (Létourneau): from Old French estournel ‘starling’ (Late Latin sturnellus, a diminutive of classical Latin sturnus), with the definite article l', hence a nickname for a chattering, gregarious person or a metonymic occupational name for a birdcatcher.
