This exhibit brings together materials from the Clements Library at the University of Michigan that illuminate the history of disability in the nineteenth-century United States. Most of these artifacts are representative of a type or genre of items held at the Clements, allowing a degree of generalizability. A large number are extremely rare and some, like a manuscript by a man experiencing hallucinations or what he called “imaginations,” are entirely unique.
