Scope and Content Note

This subseries of the general inmate case files series, Series 14610, consists of inmate case files relating to men who were incarcerated in Attica Correctional Facility. Inmate case files describe in great detail the family and social background, arrest, confinement, and release/parole of inmates. The content of the case files reflects the role of each institution.

After 1976, a sampling plan was instituted for all inmate case files. This includes all inmates who died in custody, sex offenders, inmates of certain minority ethnic groups, and those who received life sentences as well as a 2% sample of all inmates who were released from any correctional facility.

W0005-05: This accretion contains a 2% sample of case files for inmates incarcerated in Attica Correctional facility. In addition to the sampled case files, files for prisoners receiving life sentences, sex offenders, inmates who died in custody, and inmates of Asian and Native American ethnicity are included when available.
