Oregon State Hospital History

As regular readers of this web site know, the Mental Health Association of Portland is preparing to make a feature-length documentary film about the Oregon State Hospital.

We’re in pre-pre-production now, just measuring the size of the question. And it’s a big question.

One of our initial tasks is to gain a good understanding of the history of the hospital. To coordinate this, we’ve created a web page to host the various texts which are informing our understanding.

You’re welcome to follow along and learn the history of the hospital too by visiting the page and reviewing the various texts linked there. The page will grow over the next several months, so keep checking back.
