Summary: This photograph shows the newly constructed Hopkins Gymnasium on the East Campus of the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas. James "Red" Pratt, Director of Adjunctives Therapies is shooting baskets while an unidentified staff member is lifting weights. In 1925, the Menninger Sanitarium Corporation purchased a farmhouse on the west edge of Topeka, Kansas. The farmhouse became the inpatient clinic and the surrounding 20 acres were developed with buildings and gardens to become the "East Campus" of the Menninger Foundation. This photograph documents the construction of an important building in the Menninger philosophy of treatment. In 1982, the "West Campus", a much larger area, was developed west of Topeka, a residential scale community of 28 structures on a 350 acre hilltop campus. In 2003, the Menninger Foundation was moved to Houston, Texas.
