This was a video that I came across while doing research for my digital project but ultimately decided not to use. It is a video tour of the Fulton State Hospital in Missouri, which was built in the 1800s. Reading in chapter six of Tomes about the struggles that people like Curwen had with maintaining their institutions immediately reminded me of this video and the issues of out of date equipment and the way that the building was largely ill suited to caring for patients that seems to have remained a struggle in mental health care long after just the time period covered by Tomes.
