The Willard Asylum for the Insane was founded in 1869 and closed in 1995. All who worked at the institution had a very warm and close relationship with the inmates whose cases and belongings they carefully preserved. Years later, these cases, 400 in number, and their contents were all photographed and carefully documented for posterity.
