Some days are just the wrong century

Day 2: Slow digging

I’m not going to get discouraged. I’m not going to get discouraged. I’m not going to get discouraged. I’m not going to get discouraged. I’m not going to get discouraged. I’m not going to get discouraged. Repeat.

Dug through a cart’s worth of boxes today. Found a few cool items but the 20th century predominated – looks like there’s a great history-of-occupational-therapy-in-institutions project waiting for someone. There are some great photographs from the 1930s right up into the 1970s – unfortunately there were far fewer items from my selected century 😦

I did find some cool old scrapbooks (pictured) with newspaper clippings, entertainment programs, circulars, and other notices from the Willard State Hospital. And I got to see the photographs of the Willard Suitcase Exhibit – it was much larger than the website/book made it seem!
