In 1887, Nellie
Bly had herself committed to the notorious Blackwell's Island insane
asylum in New York City with the goal of discovering what life was like
for its patients. While there, she experienced firsthand the shocking
abuse and neglect of its inmates, from inedible food to horrifyingly
unsanitary conditions.Ten Days in a Madhouse is Bly's expose of the
asylum. Written for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, Bly's account
chronicles her ten days at Blackwell's Island and, upon its publication,
drew public attention to the abuse of the institutionalized and led to a
grand jury investigation of the facility. Ten Days in a Madhouse
established Bly as a pioneering female journalist and remains a classic
of investigative reporting.
