Historical Image of the Day

Boy before, during, and 10 minutes after undergoing a frontal lobotomy. I believe this is from 1963.

I almost apologize for how disturbing these images are. But as you all probably know, and as my students certainly know, I don't believe in shielding the public from even the darkest abysses of our collective past. I hope there is value in this stance and in seeing these images.
