Karl Augustus Menninger

This is a photograph of Dr. Karl Augustus Menninger. He was born in Topeka, Kansas on July 22, 1893. He studied at Washburn College in Topeka, Indiana University, and the University of Wisconsin before finally graduating cum laude from Harvard Medical School in 1917. Dr. Karl became interested in psychiatry and the mental health needs of children during his medical internship at Boston Psychopathic Hospital. Dr. Karl returned to Topeka and began practicing medicine with his father, Dr. Charles Fredrick Menninger; together the two opened the Menninger Diagnostic Clinic in 1919. By 1925, the two doctors started the Menninger Sanitarium, a private facility that served as an alternative to state hospitalization. After securing the services of Dr. William Claire Menninger, Karl's younger brother, the Menninger Foundation was created, offering a variety of mental health services and programs for both adults and children. Dr. Karl also helped to establish, with collaboration from the federal government, the Winter VA Hospital, whose potential as a training ground for students of psychiatry became the impetus for the creation of the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry. In 2003, the Menninger Foundation partnered with the Baylor College of Medicine and relocated to Houston, Texas. The Menninger Foundation archives, including Karl Augustus Menninger's collection, is now housed at the Kansas Historical Society.

Anna Freud correspondence

Freud, Anna, 1895-1982

These are handwritten and typed letters, mostly outgoing, from Anna Freud to Karl Menninger, Rudolph Ekstein, May D. Lee, and other Menninger Foundation staff.

Topics include publishing and requesting reprints, visits (or apologizing for not visiting), professional organizations and conferences, comments and critiques on writings, family deaths, and greeting cards. Anna Freud came to the Menninger Clinic in Topeka on multiple occasions during the 1960s. These papers are part of the historic psychiatry material in the Menninger Archives.


Charles Chadwick to Hiram Hill

Chadwick, Charles

Charles Chadwick wrote from Quindaro, Kansas Territory, to Hiram Hill in Massachusetts, concerning several 40 acre lots which were marked off shortly before Samuel N. Simpson left town. It appeared to Chadwick that those Simpson had purchased were purchased on the behalf of absentee investors, such as Hill, even though they had not been divided or designated in the name of any others. Chadwick presumed that Abelard Guthrie would allow Hill to have the land he thought was being purchased in his name upon payment to the Town Company. Chadwick also reported that prices of land were staying up in Quindaro, and that business development continued.
