The only psychiatrist in New Britain, Connecticut, collected 124 local stories of suicide from 1941 to 1948. Fifty years later, his grandson discovered them, studied them and researched the people in those stories, how they lived and what they left behind. These are stories of the human struggles of forgotten people, and together they create a social history of the city and a fractured snapshot of a world at war. Sound and music by Wilson Vediner and Courtney Sheedy (both of the bands Months and Point Juncture, WA). This podcast is made possible by a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
