A Block, Cell 23 -- "5-5-46" "633" "705"

#633 was Marvin Atkeson, in for National Bank Robbery
#705 was Joseph Kitchens, in for Dyer Act Violation, Transportation of Stolen Firearms, and Escape Risk

The date May 5, 1946 corresponds to the end of the infamous "Battle of Alcatraz" and probably represents men transferred to A Block for temporary holding following the breakout attempt.
