WSSM-05: The Willowbrook Collection

 Collection
Identifier: WSSM-05

Abstract

The Willowbrook Collection is a collection of individual items related to the Willowbrook State School. These materials were clearly not created as a record group, rather, they came to be stored together as a group and information regarding their provenance and accession is now unclear. This being the case, the materials are being kept together for storage purposes. The collection includes photographs of the closing ceremony for the Willowbrook State School and the transfer of the property to the College of Staten Island. These photographs may have been used in a 1994 exhibit entitled, “Willowbrook: People, Place and Time.” There are similar photographs available in the records of the College of Staten Island. There are also exhibit brochures, proclamations, videocassettes and audiocassettes.
