In the section about Frank I would like to point out that using the phrase “went nuts” may be a little insensitive, especially in this context. Mary Says: What a wonderful find and many thanks to Crispin for sharing this with the world. I had a relative who was committed to an asylum in California in the 20s, but in researching for genealogy, there were no records available for her. It’s as if she never existed and that is so unfair. Through the family rumor mill it was said she lost her only child and never recovered. I can understand how that would send a mother into the vortex of insanity. Bless her and all of those who found that turning inward was easier than what humanity had to offer. [/quote]
Photographer Jon Crispin has long been drawn to the ghostly remains of abandoned psychiatric institutions. After learning of the Willard suitcases, Crispin sought the museum’s permission to document each case and its contents. In 2011, Crispin completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to help fund the first phase of the project, which he recently finished. Next spring, a selection of his photos will accompany the inaugural exhibit at the San Francisco Exploratorium’s new location.
