Historic Psychiatry original miscellaneous documents

These are a variety of handwritten and typed letters, lectures, autographs, news clippings, biographical information, images and sketches, court documents, and other documents related to the history of psychiatry. These documents are housed in four boxes and the folders within are arranged alphabetically by surname or title, and they are included in the larger collection of historic psychiatry material in the Menninger Archives. Authors come from such fields as medicine, religion, prison and other reform and advocacy movements, politics, the military, etc. The documents themselves sometimes provide significant information, and sometimes they were collected because their authors were significant historical figures. Some of the individuals found in Box 1 include James Mark Baldwin, Ludwig Binswanger, Eugen Bleuler, Jean-Martin Charcot, Elizabeth Fry, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Carl Jung. Some of the individuals found in Box 2 include Alfred Adler, Robert Frost, and Washinton Irving. This box also includes a 68-page handwritten notebook by Dr. W.W. Reed entitled "Reminiscenses About the Treatment of the Insane." Some of the individuals found in Box 3 include Amariah Brigham and Frederick van Eeden. This box also includes a correspondence file (1883-1888) on Ellen Kehoe, a patient at the Worcester Lunatic Hospital in Massachusetts, and a series of drawings from the 1920s and 1930s by a Belgian patient suffering from paranoia named Andreas at the Kankakee State Hospital in Illinois. The drawings were donated by Dr. J.B. Gier, formerly of the Topeka Veteran's Administration Hospital, who knew the patient and encouraged his work. Box 4 includes a miscellaneous folder regarding insane asylums and contains legal documents, postcard images, and receipts for services. Languages include English, German, French and Italian, and transcriptions or translations follow some of the documents.

Topeka Veterans Administration Hospital 20th anniversary

Mayor Charles Wright is cutting a cake to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Topeka Veterans Administration Hospital, later renamed the Colmery-O'Neil Veterans Administration Hospital. During world War II years, it was the Winter General Army Hospital. Dr. Karl Menninger is the second person from the left. The Menninger School of Psychiatry trained psychiatrists here to treat returning service men and women. In those postwar times, five to seven percent of all the psychiatrists in the U.S. and Canada were trained at Menninger. The major contribution of the school was a greater commitment to a didactic curriculum, a team approach to diagnosis and treatment, and a model of diagnostic case study outline. This philosophy of mental health care was presented by Dr. Karl Menninger in his "Manual for Psychiatric Case Study," that initiated a broad-based approach to diagnosis.
