5After the sympathetic portrayal by Burt Lancaster in the motion picture Birdman of Alcatraz (1962), members of the public wrote letters asking that Stroud be released. The real Robert Stroud was not a model prisoner. Although highly intelligent, he was regarded as a difficult, scheming, violent sociopath. He killed two additional people while in prison. It is believed that he may have actually been a psychopath. He was transfered to the federal prison at Alcatraz where he spent the first year in isolation.
6Because of the popularity of the biographical motion picture Birdman of Alcatraz (1962), he became one of the most famous inmates ever held at the federal prison at Alcatraz, second only to mob boss Al Capone.
7It was during his 30 year confinement at Leavenworth that he developed his legendary interest in birds. He was never allowed to keep any birds while at Alcatraz.
8The 'Birdman of Alcatraz' wrote a book about diseases in canaries for ornithologists, "Stroud's Digest on the Diseases of Birds" (original published in 1943), that is still widely revered today.
