Speaker: Dr. Rhoda Miller
Topic: Researching New York State Institutional Hospitals

The focus of this presentation will be the major psychiatric hospitals on Long Island (Central Islip, Pilgrim, and Kings Park), but much of the material will be applicable to retrieving patient information at institutions throughout New York State. There will be an historical perspective about the development of these institutions, resources for locating patient information, an overview of the state hospital cemeteries, and the life of Jewish patients.
