On March 4, 1958, a psychologist Eugene Byrd who worked at the Florida School for Boys for a year gave testimony during a U.S. congressional hearing.

“The blows are very severe,” he said in recorded testimony, describing beatings at the school. “They are dealt with a great deal of force with a full arm swing over his head and down, with a strap, a leather strap approximately a half inch thick and about 10 inches long with a wooden formed handle. Each boy received a minimum of 15.”

He later added, “In my personal opinion it is brutality.”
