PSYCHIATRIC CENTER RELICS: THE WILLARD SUITCASES
In 1995, the state of New York closed a psychiatric center in Willard, N.Y. During an inventory of items remaining in the facility, workers discovered more than 400 suitcases, dating from 1910 to 1960, containing the possessions of former patients. An exhibit of the “Willard Suitcases” eventually led to a photography project headed by Jon Crispin. Crispin writes on his website that “these objects open a small window into the lives of some of the people who lived at the facility.”
From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Crispin will be the featured speaker at a meeting of the UTMB Osler Club at Temple B’nai Israel, 3008 Ave. O, in Galveston.
“The Willard Suitcases” presentation, which includes a light buffet, is free, but a reservation is required.
The event is presented by The John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 409-747-9680.
