Episode 8: A Man in All That the Name Implies

We’re going to the Binghamton Asylum Cemetery–a place that feels forgotten, as much as the people who are buried here. Inside there’s more than one marker that’s been lost in the weeds and the overgrowth. There must be hundreds of people buried here, and this episode we’re going to talk about one: Joseph Israel Lobdell.

If you’d like to learn more about Joseph, I highly recommend picking up a copy of “A Strange Sort of Being”: The Transgender Life of Lucy Ann / Joseph Israel Lobdell, 1829–1912 by Bambi Lobdell.

This episode of Artifacts was written, researched, and hosted by Natalie Shoemaker.
