‘Wild Bill’ Baker, #1259AZ, Returns for Another ‘Stint’ on ‘the Rock’!

William Baker, Age 23, Arrives At USP-Alcatraz in 1956


Former Alcatraz Prisoner Bill Baker, just released from USP-Leavenworth in 2011, has written and published ‘Alcatraz 1259′ – an entertaining first person account of the tumultuous path which led to America’s most nototrious prison.
