Resume
Four miles or so from Walden Pond, traveling west, one comes up against the blankly assertive walls of the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Concord -- the state's oldest working prison for men, rich in history if not in aspect. Malcolm X was an alumnus, back when it was the Concord Reformatory. Dr Timothy Leary, as a Harvard psychiatrist, ran his Concord Prison Experiment there in the early 1960s, dosing cons with psilocybin before administering the Thematic Apperception Test and the Minnesota MultiPhasic Personality Inventory. From 2002 to 2003 it housed John Geoghan, the pedophile Catholic priest whose case undid the prelateship of Cardinal Bernard Law. Nothing but an accident of geography connects the place to Henry David Thoreau, sage of the woods. And yet the circumstance that Walden was composed in the neighborhood, as it were -- just a couple of minutes' drive down Route 2 -- resonates powerfully.
