Jon Crispin's Notebook

Please check this out.


Hi Everyone,  Lin Stuhler has been working for the last 10 years to reclaim some respect to the patients at Willard and other New York State institutions.  She recently posted this on her site “The Inmates of Willard“.  Please read it.

I am really interested in moving ahead with lobbying NY State legislators to sort this issue out.  If any of you have ideas on how to proceed or have connections to state legislators, please get in touch.

Thanks for following.

The above photo is from Margaret D.’s collection.  It is amazing.  Check it out here.  There are over 500 photos in the gallery so make sure you click on the 500 link at the bottom.  Also if you are on Instagram, I am posting an image almost daily. @willardsuitcases.

    I’m pretty sure no one signed any HIPAA forms at the Willard Asylum. Shouldn’t they just be public record at that time? I believe HIPAA came about in 1996.
