Sybil: The true & extraordinary story of a young woman

Shirley Ardell Mason (January 25, 1923 – February 26, 1998):

An abusive and traumatic childhood resulted in her developing a multiple personality disorder or a disorder known as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)- with 16 different personalities.
Her life was fictionalized in 1973 in the book Sybil, and two films of the same name were made in 1976 and 2007. Both the book and the films used the name Sybil Isabel Dorsett to protect Mason's identity, though the 2007 remake stated Mason's name in its conclusion.

New York Times published an article on October 16, 2011: "A Girl Not Named Sybil".
