This photo accompanied Part 2 (24 September 1946) of Gorman's report on Oklahoma state psychiatric hospitals. The caption on the back of the photo reads: "Hospital patients cooped up--Elderly mental patients in one of the senile wards at Eastern Oklahoma Hospital. There are more than 250 old patients at Eastern and, due to the shortage of attendants, they are cooped up inside the wards day in and day out. Note, also, the proximity of the beds.". NOTE: The original photograph was retouched to obscure the faces of the people in the photograph.
