Women's History Month Image of the Week: Today we're highlighting another woman whose story we recently learned through a donation to the collection. Teresa "Terry" Dare came to the New York State Hospital at Ray Brook for treatment in the early 1940s from Utica. She is pictured here seated on the arm of the chair next to a fellow patient, Theresa Grillo, in August of 1942. Teresa's photo album shows what life was like for young women coming to Ray Brook, and includes images of parties, picnics, and growing friendships.
