Alcatraz Alumni Event
2018 Alcatraz Alumni Day
To commemorate the anniversary of the opening of United States Penitentiary Alcatraz, the National Park Service hosted the annual Alumni Day on Sunday, August 12, 2018.
Along with regular self-guided tour options and the Cellhouse Audio Tour, numerous programs were be presented by former Alcatraz residents – correctional officers and their families, as well as a former inmate. These Alcatraz “Alumni” shared their personal stories of Alcatraz Island’s past through panel discussions, presentations, tours, and slide shows offered throughout the day.
