William H. Murray, one of the nine high school graduates memorialized in this exhibition, was beaten to death as an inmate here by a white guard in what newspapers at that time called “The Most Brutal Murder in Maryland’s History.” Founded in 1911 as the “Hospital for the Negro Insane,” Crownsville was notorious for nearly 100 years for overcrowding, patient abuse, refusal to integrate, and experimental operations - a grim example of how the state and federal government interpreted “public service” for Black citizens.
