Letters from some distance place

This virtual exhibition is the culmination of a five-month investigative history workshop in 2016 at the Hudson High School in Hudson, NY, facilitated by Prison Public Memory Project’s Hudson Site coordinator, Brian Buckley, and Hudson Community Schools Writing Center coordinator, Gail Wheeler. Students explored and interpreted personal histories of girls incarcerated at the NYS Training School for Girls, a juvenile prison that operated from 1904 until 1975 just a mile south of Hudson, NY’s town center, on the site that is currently the Hudson Correctional Facility.
