Traveling Exhibit comes to Resnick Library

This month, Resnick Library will be hosting The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic. Sponsored by the Delaware County Rural Healthcare Alliance, this traveling exhibit displays the stories of patients of the Willard Psychiatric Center, pieced together from suitcases and personal belongings found in the attic when the facility closed in 1995. It provides insight into psychiatric institutions in the early-mid 20th century, and honors the memories of these people and others like them who were removed from their communities and institutionalized.
