Dr. William Awl was born on May 24, 1799, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He studied medicine at the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Awl sought to improve medical care for the imprisoned, the blind, and the mentally ill. Awl helped organize the Ohio Medical Association. This organization lobbied the Ohio legislature to establish a state hospital for the mentally ill and a school for the blind. He was the first physician at the Lunatic Asylum in Columbus and served as its director until 1850. He died on November 19, 1876.
