Time flies when you are having fun! This post made me think about my own state hospital website that went online in 2007. It's crazy how fast things progress! Here's looking forward to 5 more!

Welcome back! Although sorry to hear you lost your job. I haven't heard much about WaCoTs in a while. I was wondering, heard anything from Tim lately?

I'm a little late to this thread, but I wanted to add my two cents. I remember when this site came online. I gave you a hard time about it, Jonathan. You may remember I thought the site wasn't "necessary". I thought it was a mere copy of the Historic Asylums site, etc. I'm sorry I said that. It was uncalled for. The site's really grown, and I'm impressed and at times a bit jealous It's a great resource, everything Historic Asylums should be but sadly never became. I've learned a lot from Asylum Projects, as well as from all the people that frequent it and who keep unearthing new revelations from asylum history. Great job, Jonathan. Keep it up.

Thanks. I'd like to think you had given me the kick in the rear to actually do something like this. But now it is because of everyone's hard work that it's where it is now. Hopefully you can relax back and join in with some of the conversations in the forum and chuck in some of that vast Kirkbride knowledge of yours!

Willard State Hospital
Dear Mr. Brothers, You have done a great job! Thank you for all your hard work. I have a lot to offer for people wanting to find more information on Willard State Hospital, including names of patients from the U.S. Federal Census, but I must admit that I can't figure out how to add info and I don't want to erase someone else's work. Anyway, great job! Sincerely, Linda S. Stuhler

Thank you very much. Though, AP couldn't have gotten where it is now without the help and involvement of the community.

As far as adding information, AP operates the same as Wikipedia. Once you get to the article you want to edit, you can either A) edit the entire page by selecting the edit tab at the top of the page or B) selecting the edit tabs of the individual sections you want to edit. After that, you will be presented with an edit window. There you can add whatever information you want to add. (Hint: if you're not sure how to format what you need to format, take a look at what has been already created for answers, or come here to ask.) Once you are done adding your information, just hit save. It's just that simple.

Though, if things seem slow its due to our servers, its not your computer. Just be patient and it will go through.

whatever information that can be shared for my paternal uncle hubert l pere
my Uncle Hubert was born in Dilley Tx in 1913. He developed status epilepticus at about the age of puberty according to my grandmother. He became an inmate of the Abilene State Hospital for epileptics between the years of 1925 and and 1930. He remained there until he was transferred to a facility in Big Spring TX. According to his death certificate he had been in a San Antonio state facility before his death in San Antonio in the middle 1960s. I do not know what to ask for because I do not know what is available or possible to share.It would wonderful to have pictures/stories of his life. I am a retired public school speech/language pathologist so I would assume progress notes were kept. I was also told that it was many years before medications were developed that would help him. His life was very tragic His father died at 28 with t.b. His mother took him and his brother to live with his maternal grandparents in Dilley (from Laredo TX) after 1921 as she had few employable skills and could not support them. As far as I know he was there until the onset of severe/frequent epileptic seizures. I will gladly furnish whatever information you need from me. His mother was Lois Ethel Cavender Pereira and his father was Hubert Lampman Pereira Sr. My fathers name was Melvin Cavender Pereira and my name is Melvileen Z. Pereira Klein. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Looking for info on family members who died in asylums. In Waupaca, WI great great grandfather, David VanSlate died in 1920. Would like to know where they buried him. Also in Sedro Woolley, Washington, great grandmother died. Gravemarkers with just initials and numbers were put in Mount Vernon cemetary. I read there is a group trying to identify each individual and replace it with a real headstone with their name. Anyone know about any of this?
