One or another iteration of the West Virginia institution flourished through 1994.
Perhaps you might explain what numbers of these admission tripwires might mean.

Do you know anyone who doesn’t belong there?
Yeesh. How big was this place?
What strikes me is that the people who drew up this list and managed the place are likely to have been dedicated and caring people.
Well, when it comes to ailments, they certainly were inclusive.
I've done a number of Guardianship cases, and the legal history is fascinating. In the past, well-meaning judges and lawmakers were often conned into granting Guardianships to people. The findings were advocated on the basis of "incapacity," but families often pushed for them, so that they could get rid of unwanted family members, get people eliminated as probate beneficiaries and the like. In the old days, many judges and review boards were staffed with very well-meaning, but hopelessly naiive people. I have no doubt that the people who ran these asylums were often good people with the highest of intentions, but that they had very bad "bullshit detectors," and were gamed and conned into committing countless healthy people.
Today, the laws are much stricter. Not because people at these review boards are mean and need to be regulated, but because there's always the chance that people, out of sympathy, and desire to help a family, will be manipulated into committing people who have no business being committed.
