The 1930s bring to mind a few famous names, but perhaps the most notorious was the bank robber John Herbert Dillinger. His stickups eventually caught up with him and landed him in jail, and you can visit the cell from which he escaped at the Lake County Sheriff's House and Jail in Crown Point, Indiana. Although the cell was widely believed to be escape-proof, Dillinger and his cellmate broke out in March 1934. He eluded the authorities for a few months before being killed in a hail of gunfire in July of the same year.
