Fate of ‘Lost Alaskans’ sent to Oregon mental hospital a century ago uncovered by volunteers

Summary by Ground News
Lucy Pitka McCormick was one of about 5,500 Alaskans who were committed to a hospital in Portland, Oregon, between 1904 and the 1960s. Most records at the private hospital were lost in a 1968 fire. Many never left, and their families never learned their fate. A new database went online in February to help families see if their long-lost auntie or great-grandfather were among those sent to Morningside.
