By the time it closed in 1995 after 126 years of operation, Willard Psychiatric Center, overlooking Seneca Lake in Upstate New York, had been home to over 54,000 people. If not for the discovery of more than 400 suitcases filled with patients' belongings in the hospital attic, their lives would have been lost to history. In The Lives They Left Behind, the contents of 10 of these suitcases are skillfully examined and compared to the written record to create a moving and devastating portrait of 20th century American psychiatric care.
