My name is Bill. I was also a "patient" at TCSH from 1965 thru 1969. I was 15 years old when I went in, and something like 45 when I got out. I will not disclose any names, due to my personal beliefs on privacy, however, I was one of the "big kids" ronl spoke of seeing when he came into Hall 18. I can corroborate most of what he says. I worked the laundry room on the Hall and was the one who handed out clothing and towels after the showers. I was also the one who buffed the floors daily (excepting Sundays, when I sang in the Chapel Choir). One thing he doesn't mention about the shower room is the large concrete "bathtub" which was seldom used, except for punishment "Ice Baths" where a kid would be stripped and held in the tub by a couple of attendants while a "Nurse" would cover him in ice. They would hold the kid in there until he stopped struggling, and the "Nurse" would finally allow him to be removed.
