Dear Ms. Clark,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 6 series in the Records of the Bureau of Prisons (Record Group 129) that contain information about inmates of the United States Penitentiary at McNeil Island, WA during the 1950s. Some of these items are digitized and available via the Catalog. For access to the non-digitized records in these series, please contact the National Archives at Seattle (RW-SE) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RW-SE. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
