From "For Their Own Good" St.Pete Times
Dr. Wexler is dead, but his daughter remembers helping her father, who had poor eyesight, when their family lived on campus. Sheila
Wexler says she occasionally treated boys who had cuts or welts on their behinds. "But if they needed a stitch," she says, "it
would only be a few." Would you beat your child until they only need a "Few Stitches?" A casual, horrific statement that shows the
mind set of Marianna.

Michael O'McCarthy, one of the Original Four WhiteHouseBoys, died April 3, 2010 in Costa Rica
during a back sugery. Michael was one of those rare individuals that shake the world. Without him
and his journalistic ties, this story may have never reached the press.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Don't think of him as gone away--
his journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

"Corporal punishment in my estimation is passé,
commented R.A. McFarland, Head of the Sheriff's
Juvenile Aid Bureau. "According to the civil rights laws
you can't beat an adult. Why allow the beating of
children?" From the Miami News March 5, 1958
BOYS WERE TAKEN TO MARIANNA'S
LOCAL FARMS TO HARVEST CROPS
THIS WAS ILLEGAL
"In the history of the American environmental movement, there have
been few more remarkable figures than Marjory Stoneman Douglas."

Andrew Bowers, a chaplain at the Dozier School from 1959 to 1963, recalls: For most of its history, Dozier freely practiced flogging as a method of
discipline,or as a matter of whim. Mr. Bowers remembers, "they would spank the boys when they did wrong or really whenever they wanted to. Some of
them they treated pretty bad. Sometimes they'd spank the children until they couldn't sit down for days. Many beatings were administered with a
"weighted-leather-flogging strap. "Source: http://www.law.fsu.edu/library/flsupct/78161/78161ini.pdf starting at page 15-18. Testimony from a court document.
