This Day in History: 1963 – Alcatraz Prison in San Francisco Bay closes down and transfers its last prisoners. At its peak in the 1950s, “The Rock” housed over 200 inmates.
Fact of the Day: A total of 36 inmates attempted to escape the prison at Alcatraz. Of those convicts, 23 were captured, six were shot to death, and two drowned. The other five went missing and are presumed drowned. No bodies were ever recovered, however.
#StrangeButTrue: Prison cells at Alcatraz were smaller than most bedroom closets. A standard bedroom closet today measures six feet by six feet. A cell at Alcatraz measured five feet by nine feet. The space included a bed, toilet, and sink.
