"Antoine" was the possible first name of a man admitted to the Stockton State Hospital in California in 1856. He died due to epilepsy on October 28, 1856; two days after his admission. He was reportedly from France and described as an "idiot," which, at the time, was a clinical term referring to an individual whose intellectual development doesn't exceed that of a two-year-old.
