Asylum Scandals is an incredible eye-opener on the state of Minnesotas asylums in 1867-1915.
Patricia Lubeck unravels the horrific acts in St. Peter State Hospital and Rochester State Hospital. She shares factual accounts and documentation coming from the patients themselves, families affected, workers, and news media that had witnessed the actual conditions of the aforementioned asylums.
Stories of patients abuse, neglect, torturous procedures and treatments, and even murders are numerous. Even more shocking are the accounts of how patients were admitted even on just a presumption of insanity, with little to no evidence to support thereof.
Read the stories, and unravel a gut-wrenching truth echoed throughout insane asylums in the past. Order Patricia Lubecks Asylum Scandals: Abuse, Torture, Corruption and Murder in Minnesotas State Hospitals on Amazon.
Catch the books display at the ReadersMagnet exhibit booth at the LibLearnX 2023.
