Jennifer I added American Fire and I'll be gone in the dark. There is a good book by Nellie Bly called "10 days in a Madhouse" where she investigates the conditions of women's mental institutions, but it's over 100 years old. It's still very good, but not sure if you want it on the list since it was published way before 1950.
