Books News: “A Lunatic in the Family”

While working on my own family’s genealogy, as well as the history of the extended Jefferson family, I had the opportunity to explore the wonderful collection for Western State Hospital (a. k. a. Western Lunatic Asylum) housed at the Library of Virginia.

A taste of what I learned is highlighted in my recent article, “A Lunatic in the Family,” published in the Library of Virginia’s quarterly, Broadside (Summer 2018), pages  6-7.
