I don't know how many of you get caught up in researching asylums/hospitals but to me it's half the fun. My professional background adds to this as well. I've recently come across some great books and thought I would share.

1-The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases From a State Hospital Attic
Authors: Darby Penney/Peter Stastny


2-Women of the Asylum: Voices from Behind the Walls, 1840-1945
Author: Jeffrey L. Geller


A book I was very disappointed by--THE EYE OF DANVERS: A HISTORY OF DANVERS STATE HOSPITAL by
Michael Ramseur. Looked more like a child's coloring book than a professional text as it is listed.
