Category: Institutions

Categories: Society

This is a high level category. Please do not add individual profiles. Add profiles to the narrowest category possible. See How to Categorize.

This category is intended to provide links for institutions such as

  • Poor farms
  • Work houses
  • State hospitals
  • Insane asylums
  • Prisons
  • Orphanages and children's homes
  • "Villages" for the feeble-minded and epileptic
  • Sanatoria for the long-term treatment of diseases such as tuberculosis

Similar institutions in which people were "inmates" rather than residents may be included. Being an inmate can be voluntary or forced or involuntary. Individual profiles may also be linked to a sub-category by virtue of being a member of staff, e.g. a prison guard or state hospital nurse.

Profiles of individuals should not appear in this category, but in an appropriate sub-category.
