Through a close study of representations of lobotomy in a wide variety of cultural texts, American Lobotomy offers a rhetorical history of the infamous procedure and illustrates its continued effect on American medicine. The development of lobotomy in 1935 was heralded as a “miracle cure” by newspapers and magazines, which hoped openly that the “soul surgery” would empty the nation’s perennially blighted asylums. However, the miracle cure soon began to fall from favor with the American public, as the operation became characterized as a barbaric practice with suspiciously authoritarian overtones. – See more at: http://www.press.umich.edu/4664873/american_lobotomy#sthash.EDrTdqxp.dpuf

Tower Colliery SWC was formed in 1951, at that time 1200 men worked at Tower. A general meeting was held and the men agreed to have 5p (1 shilling old money) deducted from their wages. This would be used for parties for the children of employees at Christmas. £1.50 would be used for retired miners to have “a get together” at the St Johns Ambulance Hall.

This man said that last year he thought maybe he would be a little better off when he got the WPA work and had a small amount of cash coming in but that he was worse off now. “Last year I had a cow and some chickens and I had to sell my cow and eat my chickens. I get worse off every year”

“We are a lost people.” That description by an Innu chief seemed fitting when a shocking video of six gas-sniffing teens, screaming they wanted to die, was broadcast to the world. The once-nomadic Innu of Labrador have struggled under a haze of isolation, poverty and addiction ever since their 1967 settlement. A second relocation, this time from the shantytown of Davis Inlet to the new community of Natuashish, offered much promise, but it was just the beginning of a long healing process.
