6 p.m.THE STORIES OF THE SUITCASES
Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30 p.m. When Willard Psychiatric Center closed in 1995, an employee discovered a large collection of suitcases in storage in an attic. Many of these pieces of luggage contained the personal belongings of former patients. John Crispin has photographed the suitcases and their contents; his images offer a window into the lives and personal stories of patients admitted between 1910 and 1960. He will share the photos and what they reveal about the past.
