My Father was an inmate at Walpole State Prison in the late 60's/early 70's. He mentioned meeting Albert DeSalvo there, so this riot may have occured when he was there but the only riot there that he ever spoke to me about was one where the lights went out and if I recall correctly a man (possibly a guard) was killed before it was over.
I wonder if this is the same incident?
My Father is gone now and I am trying to piece together more information about his life, your story may or may not be related in any way to his but it is interesting, thanks for posting it.
