Abstract:

The history of Saint Elizabeth's Hospital, the national mental institution in Washington, D.C., and the changes in American treatment of the mentally ill which the hospital's history reflects. When the first patient entered Saint Elizabeth's in 1855, he had the place all to himself. By 1950, with 7000 residents, the institution had changed from a haven to a crowded pen. The civil rights movement of the 1960s led to a general release of this patient population and the closing of much of the hospital, but questions of how best to treat the mentally ill remain unresolved.
