Newspaper accounts of deaths at
Eastern State Hospital
Lexington, Kentucky 1826-1953

Sources and full text of newspaper accounts available here


...numbers of deaths occur in these State institutions of which nothing is ever heard by the outside world. A law should be enacted requiring the superintendents of all asylums, hospitals and other institutions of the kind to report all deaths that occur within their walls and the cause of such deaths. A suicide the other day only became known to the newspapers and the outside world by the merest accident. The Lexington [KY] Leader, 09 August 1894
