These early prisons were designed to hold inmates in large open rooms, which made it difficult to keep control of the inmates. The prisons faced uprisings and attempted escapes. Concern for public safety was the main reason these prisons were closed. The new prisons designers were to ensure separation of inmates and offer reformation opportunities. Auburn state prison and Eastern penitentiary were built.
Psychologist Diana Baumrind considered the experiment "harmful because it may cause permanent psychological damage and cause people to be less trusting in the future. " Australian psychologist Gina Perry examined Milgram's methodology, using original data from the Yale archives in her 2013 book Behind the Shock Machine: The Untold Story of the Notorious Milgram Psychology Experiments. Perry claims that Milgram's experiments and conclusions are flawed because he intentionally downplayed or ignored critical data that failed to support his thesis.

Walnut Street Prison Tonia Jenkins History of Criminal Justice Sarah Robertson April 8, 2012 The Walnut Street Prison was a pioneering effort in prison reform. Originally built as a conventional jail just before the American Revolution, it was expanded in 1790 and hailed as a model of enlightened thinking about criminals (Johnston).The prison was built on Walnut Street, in Philadelphia, as a city jail in 1773 to alleviate overcrowding in the existing city jail. The Walnut Street Prison was one of the forerunners of an entire school of thought on prison construction and reform. It was designed to provide a severe environment that left inmates much time for reflection, but it was also designed to be cleaner and safer than past prisons. The jail was designed to hold groups of inmates in large rooms.
