Django Data Contributions

Behind the scenes of this website, there is a database which has preliminary records about Patients, their admittance and exit dates, people who contributed to the Asylum, relationships between people involved in Friends' Asylum, and more! If you would like to be part of research that will catalogue information from our primary materials in Quaker & Special Collections, email
