Title: State Hospitals and Children's Homes

Description: The State Hospitals and Children's Homes collection contains about fifty identified photographs taken by Anderson of Kansas City showing interiors and exteriors of these institutions, as well as a few of their inhabitants. The photos appear to have been taken in conjunction with an evaluation of these institutions, as they have notes about crowding and fire hazards on the reverse. Subjects include: State Hospital Number 2 in St. Joseph, Missouri; dormitories and sleeping wards; beds; children's home in Carrollton, Missouri; State Hospital Number 3 in Nevada, Missouri; rocking chairs; patients; State Industrial Home for Girls in Chillicothe, Missouri; Missouri Training School for Boys in Boonville, Missouri; Missouri State School in Marshall, Missouri.
