Index to the Attica Correctional Facility inmate case files
Attica Correctional Facility, located in Wyoming County, N.Y., is a maximum security correctional facility for male felons. Inmate case files describe in great detail the family and social background, arrest, confinement, and release/parole of incarcerated men.
This index includes names of inmates confined in Attica State Prison (later Attica Correctional Facility) between approximately 1947 and 1981. Note: Beginning with inmates released after 1956, only the following case files categories were transferred to the State Archives: inmates who died in custody, sex offenders, inmates of certain minority ethnic groups, inmates who received life sentences, and a 2% sample of all inmates who were released from any correctional facility. All other case files were destroyed.
