Book Essex Mountain Sanatorium Description/Summary:

Founded in 1907 amidst protests and a burgeoning suffrage movement, Essex Mountain Sanatorium was the result of two Montclair, New Jersey, women who successfully lobbied local government to establish a tuberculosis sanatorium in a then vacant cottage for wayward girls. From these humble beginnings, the hospital grew to become one of the finest treatment centers in the nation, expanding into a complex of 20 buildings that encompassed nearly 300 acres. Ironically, medical advances pioneered at places such as the sanatorium and the advent of antitubercular drugs in the years following World War II led to decreasing patient enrollment, which made such large facilities unnecessary. When it was eventually abandoned in the early 1980s, the hospital began its second act as a haven for urban explorers, vandals, and arsonists, becoming shrouded in mystery and the source of local legends and myths. After suffering years of neglect and abuse, the main complex would finally fall to wreckers in 1993, ending an important era in county, state, and national history.

Book The Sanatorium of Murcia Description/Summary:

Horror, supense and a mistery among those group of young vacacioners who by accident arrived to a very old Sanatorium building where they lived the most terrifying experience. Synopsis The Sanatorium of Murcia; In Sierra Espuña, Murcia, the Sanatorium of Murcia is abandoned. Place that hosted the stay of lepers and patients with tuberculosis. The less serious occupied the ground floor of the building and the more serious the upper floor, from where they could never leave. It is said that the first stone of its construction was placed in 1913 and with the sole help of the hands of the neighbors it was finished in 1917. In 1962 it was closed and with it all the sick people, who were forgotten, were abandoned to their fate. Now, in 2017, three couples of American tourists, cross the slopes of the narrow road of Sierra Espuña when the engine of the rented van stops purring. Carlos, an unbalanced mental, is pursuing something with his hunting shotgun and his crossbow. Are they. The three couples formed by boys and girls who do not exceed twenty-three years, are forced to enter the forest in search of a refuge to spend the night. When their lanterns focus on the façade of the Sanatorium they can not believe what they are seeing, although one of them is well documented about the Sanatorium. But, what they do not know is that there is a legend that there are laments heard there, they see souls and their bodies. And worst of all, there is the lady in black, who they say, walks every night in the halls of the Sanatorium. Death lurks in the most terrifying way imaginable. Succumbing to your own fear. A terrifying story in which nothing is what it seems and what kills you is not a bullet or the edge of a knife, but your own fear, terror, terror.

Book Arequipa Sanatorium Description/Summary:

As San Francisco recovered from the devastating earthquake and fire of 1906, dust and ash filled the city’s stuffy factories, stores, and classrooms. Dr. Philip King Brown noticed rising tuberculosis rates among the women who worked there, and he knew there were few places where they could get affordable treatment. In 1911, with the help of wealthy society women and his wife, Helen, a protégé of philanthropist Phoebe Apperson Hearst, Brown opened the Arequipa Sanatorium in Marin County. Together, Brown and his all-female staff gave new life to hundreds of working-class women suffering from tuberculosis in early-twentieth-century California. Until streptomycin was discovered in the 1940s, tubercular patients had few treatment options other than to take a rest cure at a sanatorium and endure its painful medical interventions. For the working class and minorities, especially women, the options were even fewer. Unlike most other medical facilities of the time, Arequipa treated primarily working-class women and provided the same treatment to all, including Asian American and African American women, despite the virulent racism of the time. Author Lynn Downey’s own grandmother was given a terminal tuberculosis diagnosis in 1927, but after treatment at Arequipa, she lived to be 102 years old. Arequipa gave female doctors a place to practice, female nurses and social workers a place to train, and white society women a noble philanthropic mission. Although Arequipa was founded by a male doctor and later administered by his son, the sanatorium’s mission was truly about the women who worked and recovered there, and it was they who kept it going. Based on sanatorium records Downey herself helped to preserve and interviews she conducted with former patients and others associated with Arequipa, Downey tells a vivid story of the sanatorium and its cure that Brown and his talented team of Progressive women made available and possible for hundreds of working-class patients.

Book Two Novellas: In the Sanatorium and Facing the Sea Description/Summary:

David Vogel has long been regarded as a leading figure of Hebrew literature, and his work has been compared to that of Joseph Roth, Thomas Mann, and Franz Kafka. In the Sanatorium was Vogel’s first published work of fiction, translated here into English for the first time. It is set in a charitable Jewish hospital for consumptives, where death is always close, desire is heightened, and breaking the rules is exciting. In his depiction of the sanatorium’s hothouse atmosphere, Vogel masterfully portrays the far-reaching effects of the decadence that was so prevalent in early-twentieth-century Europe. Written in 1932, Facing the Sea tells the story of a couple spending the summer on the French Riviera. Their idyllic holiday, however, ends up testing their relationship in ways they never thought possible. Deeply evocative of a bygone era, and intensely erotic, it shows Vogel at the height of his powers. Published together, these two novellas celebrate the legacy of one of the twentieth century’s great writers.

Book Northern Spy Description/Summary:

"A producer at the Belfast bureau of the BBC, Tessa is at work one day when the news of another raid comes on the air. The IRA may have gone underground after the Good Friday agreement, but they never really went away, and lately, bomb threats, arms drops, and helicopters floating ominously over the city have become features of everyday life. As the anchor requests the public's help in locating those responsible for this latest raid--a robbery at a gas station--Tessa's sister appears on the screen. Tessa watches in shock as Marian pulls a black mask over her face. The police believe Marian has joined the IRA, but Tessa knows this is impossible. They were raised to oppose Republicanism, and the violence enacted in its name. They've attended peace vigils together. And besides, Marian is vacationing by the sea. Tessa just spoke to her yesterday. When the truth of what has happened to Marian reveals itself, Tessa will be forced to choose: between her ideals and her family, between bystanderism and action. Walking an increasingly perilous road, she fears nothing more than endangering the one person she loves more fiercely than her sister: her infant son. A riveting and exquisite novel about family, terror, motherhood, betrayal, and the staggering human costs of an intractable conflict"--

Book Breathing Space Description/Summary:

Allergy is the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the United States. More than fifty million Americans suffer from allergies, and they spend an estimated $18 billion coping with them. Yet despite advances in biomedicine and enormous investment in research over the past fifty years, the burden of allergic disease continues to grow. Why have we failed to reverse this trend? Breathing Space offers an intimate portrait of how allergic disease has shaped American culture, landscape, and life. Drawing on environmental, medical, and cultural history and the life stories of people, plants, and insects, Mitman traces how America’s changing environment from the late 1800s to the present day has led to the epidemic growth of allergic disease. We have seen a never-ending stream of solutions to combat allergies, from hay fever resorts, herbicides, and air-conditioned homes to numerous potions and pills. But, as Mitman shows, despite the quest for a magic bullet, none of the attempted solutions has succeeded. Until we address how our changing environment—physical, biological, social, and economic—has helped to create America’s allergic landscape, that hoped-for success will continue to elude us.

Book Chasing the Cure in New Mexico Description/Summary:

This book tells the story of the thousands of “health seekers” who journeyed to New Mexico from 1880 to 1940 seeking a cure for tuberculosis (TB), the leading killer in the United States at the time. By 1920 such health seekers represented an estimated 10 percent of New Mexico’s population. The influx of “lungers” as they were called—many of whom remained in New Mexico—would play a critical role in New Mexico’s struggle for statehood and in its growth. Nearly sixty sanatoriums were established around the state, laying the groundwork for the state’s current health-care system. Among New Mexico’s prominent lungers were artists Will Shuster and Carlos Vierra, who “came to heal and stayed to paint.” Bronson Cutting, brought to Santa Fe on a stretcher in 1910, became the influential publisher of the Santa Fe New Mexican and a powerful U.S Senator. Others included William R. Lovelace and Edgar T. Lassetter, founders of the Lovelace Clinic, as well as Senator Clinton P. Anderson, poet Alice Corbin Henderson, architect John Gaw Meem, aviator Katherine Stinson, and Dorothy McKibben, gatekeeper for the Manhattan Project. New Mexico’s most infamous outlaw, Billy the Kid, first arrived in New Mexico when his mother, Catherine Antrim, sought treatment in Silver City.

Book Open Window Description/Summary:

Mothers, fathers, children, and grandparents ... both the young and the old, the rich and the poor ... went away in the early years of TB sanatoriums to recover at hospitals where, even in winter, they slept by open windows. Patients sometimes woke to snow and ice on their thick covering of blankets, frozen water in their glasses, and frozen urine in their pots. Today, while tuberculosis casts its sinister shadow back to earlier times by reemerging in new, drug-resistant forms and infecting one-fourth of the world's population, Open Window takes you inside the Lake Julia Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Northern Minnesota where the author's family once lived and worked-a place where a whole community was created and bound together by a bacterium called the tubercle bacillus. This collective biography introduces you to the community made up of: - The determined Dr. Mary Ghostley, who, in the early 1900s, some called a witch for studying medicine - Dedicated employees like the author's parents who met and fell in love at the San- Courageous nurses like Thora Bakken and Wilma Watts, who risked their own health to help others - Patients, like valedictorian- hopeful Art Holmstrom, who worked hard at doing nothing, hoping their treatment would allow them to return home rather than leaving in a wooden box. It is not uncommon when you delve into family history to run into the words "consumption," "tuberculosis," or the "White Plague." After reading "Open Window," you will have a better understanding of the struggles of family members who were stricken with this illness.Open Window's more than 135 photos make it a visual history as well as a compelling story about the Lake Julia Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Northern Minnesota.

Book History of the Weimar Joint Sanatorium and the Weimar Cemetery Description/Summary:

The Weimar Joint Sanatorium opened to receive indigent tuberculosis patients on November 17, 1919. Located five miles south of Colfax in Placer County, California, the Sanatorium operated for sixty years, accepting applicants from 15 California counties. While some recovered, many residents died and about a third of them were buried in the adjoining Weimar Cemetery, their graves marked only by a wooden stake with a brass number disc. In 2012 a massive research effort, known as the Weimar Project, began. The purpose was to match numbers with names for the people buried in the Weimar Cemetery so that the veterans buried there could be honored and so that relatives could locate lost family members. To accomplish the goals of the Weimar Project, every death certificate in Placer County, for the years the Weimar Cemetery was in operation, was examined and that data reconciled with what original Weimar Sanatorium records still exist. This book provides a history of the Weimar Joint Sanatorium and the Weimar Cemetery, photos of the Sanatorium, and a list of names and grave numbers of the approximately 1,450 people who are buried there. Also included are links to individual electronic memorials on the Find a Grave web site. As a direct result of this work, over a dozen families have been able to reconnect with long-lost loved ones. Also, several of the veterans have received headstones from the Veterans Administration and the others now have permanent markers as a result of a private donation. These are the reasons this work is so satisfying to the people involved in this project. We hope you enjoy the journey in reading of this project and learning of those that lived there.

Book The Ghosts of St. Albans Sanatorium Description/Summary:

*BLACK AND WHITE EDITION* Hidden behind the cover of "The Ghosts of St. Albans Sanatorium" are true tales of ghostly and ghastly encounters with the Denizens of the dusty hallways of the old asylum. The sanatorium was a repository for the delirious, the delusional, and the demented. Before that it was a boys school during a time when hazing was an accepted part of academic life. During these incarnations St. Albans held its long suffering boarders captive within her cold embrace. Held in a grip so tight, that it may have transcended the siren call of death. Full page photographs by the author freeze the asylum in time. In a time when seasoned paranormal investigators came to St. Albans Sanatorium hoping to engage with its resident spirits. Some investigators made a connection with the spectral presences that roam freely there. These are their stories.
