You might need to call the CDCR (California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation) Identification Unit at (916) 445-6713.

Okay, I'm looking into this for you. In the meantime, I thought you might be interested in this short film clip of San Quentin Prison in 1940. Just click on the little (i) on the clip to view larger...

Here are more clips...

Here is your best method for getting access to prison records for San Quentin...

Genealogical and Family History Resources - California State Archives - California Secretary of State

Just send them an email with your contact details...name, address, phone number. They only charge .25 a page for copies of records.
