The June 1962 Alcatraz escape was an attempt by American criminals Clarence Anglin, John Anglin, Frank Morris, and Allen West to escape Alcatraz Island, one of the United States' most famous prisons. It is possibly the only successful escape attempt from the prison. Anglin brothers Alfred Clarence and John William were born in Donalsonville, Georgia, and worked as farmers and laborers. Together they started to rob banks in Georgia and were arrested in 1956. Clarence and John were given 15-20 year sentences and sent to Atlanta Penitentiary, Florida State Prison, and Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary.show more
