Lost Alaskans
Presented by Deborah Smith

From 1904 to the 1960's, Alaskans who needed mental health services were to Morningside Hospital in Portland, OR. (Some) Alaskans were convicted of being insane and were sent ("shipped") to Oregon where they became patients of Morningside. They were taken from their families and communities, and often, never heard from again.

Deborah Smith will tell you about a Blog site
that may help you locate some of those people.
