Mary Chapin Carpenter wrote and recorded "John Doe No. 24" and purchased a headstone for this man's unmarked grave. We still don't know who he was!

He remained in the Illinois mental health care system for over thirty years. Deaf, mute, and later blind, the young black man survived beatings, hunger, overcrowding, and the dehumanizing treatment that characterized state institutions through the 1950s
