Magnet Set - Alcatraz
O-MSAZRegular price $18.95
A small island in the middle of beautiful San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz was home to America's first "super-max" federal penitentiary, housing some of the country's most notorious law-breakers. Hollywood contributed to its darkly iconic status, creating movies that helped make it the focus of anxious fascination both locally and nationwide. High maintenance costs forced the prison to close, but in 1972, Alcatraz Island became one of the Golden Gate National Parks and today, more than 1.4 million people visit it each year.

Madigan in 1956, the handbook served as a guide for inmates trying to navigate difficult sentences at the highly-restrictive federal prison.
