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 Queensboro 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.

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.

W0044-98C: This accretion contains a 2 percent sample of case files for inmates incarcerated during the period 1964-1981 and released from the institution during the period 1976-1981. In addition to the 2 percent sample, files are present for prisoners who received life sentences, sex offenders, inmates who died in custody, and inmates of Asian and Native American ethnicity. There are 136 case files in the accretion.
