From someone who was there.....

Comments about PBS Triumph at Carville: A Tale of Leprosy in America DVD:

As one who grew up there as the son of an on-staff physician, I felt like the show did a very good job representing the facility and the stigma that leprosy carries with it. The staff was very dedicated to the controlling of and researching to discover the transmission of the bacillus in the years we lived there (1963-1980). I knew several of the patients who were interviewed on the show. It was a nostalgic trip down memory lane for me. Kudos to the writers, director and producer of the show.
