In 1893 Anna Dickinson was committed by her sister and several friends to the State Hospital for the Insane in Danville, Pennsylvania. She felt that the confinement was unnecessary and unjust, and later sued her sister and friends and kidnapping, and the newspapers that covered the story libel. This cache of legal documents includes a notebook Dickinson kept during her confinement, as well as correspondence, court records, and miscellaneous legal documents about her suits.
