While he was a patient at the Sanatorium, Wadleigh took photographs of his fellow patients, staff, buildings, some festivities, and visits from his family and friends.

Observers have criticized TB sanatoriums for overly structuring patients' lives and for offering a dreary existence.

While Wadleigh left no words to describe his time at Hebron, his photographs suggest that he viewed at least some of his time there as positive.
