The Federal Penitentiary on the island was operational between 1934 and 1963 and housed some of America’s most notorious criminals of the era. Al Capone, Rafael Cancel Miranda, Alvin Creepy Karpis, and Robert Franklin Stroud were among the most prominent residents of the federal prison. The famous 1962 escape of three inmates (Clarence and John Anglin and Frank Morris) was the main reason the prison got closed the following year.
