    1. This is an alarming account of a time when staff did not have adequate control of Walla Walla Prison. It would be of great interest to those with an interest in this institution in particular or corrections in general. Implementation of corrections officer training and policies and procedures for running the facility ultimately transformed the institution, but these are referenced mainly to signify the end of this dark era.
