1. As you have learned in this Workshop, in 1821 Elam Lynds, a warden at Auburn, worked out a new congregate system of prison discipline where incarcerated individuals were isolated at night but congregated in workshops during the day; they were forbidden to talk or exchange glances on the job or at meals, and they were exposed to rigid discipline. The fell under a contract labor system at Auburn.
