#Minnesota Governor Luther Youngdahl lightening a bonfire of straightjackets, shackles, canvas mittens and other inhuman restraints used at mental health facilities throughout the early 20th century in front of #Anoka State Hospital on #Halloween night in 1949. He gave a wonderfully rousing speech before lighting the fire calling for an end to the inhumane treatment of the mentally ill. @AnokaCounty History! How great are the nurses in the background? #mentalhealth
