Howard Dully was one of the youngest patients to receive an “ice pick” lobotomy.  Today, he is a tour bus driver living in California. 

In collaboration with Sound Portraits producers Piya Kochhar and Dave Isay, Dully embarked on a remarkable two year journey to uncover the hidden story behind the lobotomy he received as a 12-year-old child.  A warning: The next page contains graphic images.
