Forgotten Ellis Island: The Extraordinary Story of America’s Immigrant Hospital
Lorie Conway (au); Chris Barnes (ph)
A century ago one of the world’s greatest public hospitals was built. The Ellis Island hospital was America’s first line of defense against immigrant-borne disease. It was a fateful crossroad for hundreds of thousands of hopeful immigrants. Those nursed to health were allowed entry to America. Those deemed feeble of body or mind were deported. Three decades after it opened, the hospital was all but abandoned. As America after WWI began shutting its border to all but a favored few, the hospital fell into disuse and decay. This book includes many never-before-published photos and compelling, sometimes heartbreaking stories of patients and medical staff. “A powerful tribute to the best and worst of America’s dealings with its new citizens-to-be.”
