Through never-before-published letters, historic family photos, and rare interviews, Woody Guthrie's Wardy Forty explores the five years Woody spent at Greystone Park State Hospital in NJ. He was a patient there from 1956-61, in Ward 40 and called it "Wardy Forty." Along with contemporary photographs of the now-abandoned hospital, these years are brought to life.
"When Phil Buehler came to me with his photographs, I knew immediately that this would be the way to communicate and hopefully illuminate Woody's heretofore unexplored life with Huntington's disease. As he so often determinedly proclaimed, 'I ain't dead quite yet'." - Nora Guthrie
