Storydello: Freddie at the Orillia Asylum

Freddie was born with some sort of intellectual or developmental disability. We don't yet have access to the records that will give more details about his condition, but he seems to have lived at home with his parents and siblings until about 1899. Then his father sent a letter of application to admit him to the Orillia Asylum, and soon afterward, Fred went to live at that institution.

Thirty-four years later, he was still there.
