Cresson: Remembering Life at the San
November 21, 2011
The tuberculosis sanatorium in Cresson, PA closed in 1964, but former patients are still haunted by their experiences. Many people remember the dangerous illness, the stigma of a TB diagnosis, and the landmark hospital in Cambria County that was nicknamed “The San.” This documentary includes rare archival photos, film and compelling interviews woven around the memories of Chuck Felton, who launched a fascinating website about his life as a teenage patient in the 1950s. Producer: David Solomon; Camera & Editing: Paul Ruggieri.
