The Ghosts of Alcatraz "Jim Quillen " by 

Jim Quillen was incarcerated on Alcatraz from 1942 to 1952. He served 10 years and one day on “The Rock”. He served approximately 18 years in various prisons. He escaped from San Quentin prison while serving time for armed robbery and then committed a series of crimes. He was finally captured by J. Edgar Hoover’s F.B.I. and sentenced to Alcatraz.
At Alcatraz, he attempted a wild escape through a tunnel with steam pipes. He was caught and thrown in the “hole”. He was also present during the 1946 escape attempt when three convicts tried to escape and shot several guards. The military were called in and they bombed the prison until they took control of it again.
