The Lamp Post, March, 1934: A Publication of the Michigan State Sanitorium at Howell, Michigan

I have to admit that I've yet to read the entire issue not having had the time to invest between work and the actual process of scanning the pages and making them blog presentable. But it runs in the same vein as the previously posted sample with scholarly articles concerning tuberculosis, a crossword puzzle and other inanities, jokes and insider asides, music and literature concerns, general patient and staff updates and comings and goings.

One small snippet at the bottom of page 8 in the THREE WEST section that might interest paranormal aficionados states:

"We wonder if some of the girls in the North Ward really hear spooks or are they having nightmares?"

The fact that the girls believed there were spooks is an open door for an investigator. That they were vivid and frightening enough to be attributed to nightmares knocks the door off the hinge. Maybe there will be more information on the matter in the remaining three issues.
