Three black and white photographs showing Menninger staff in 1941 and in 1949. Arguably, the major contribution of Menninger may be that at a time when custodial care or the asylum were the only alternatives for the mentally ill, the Menningers brought a positive commitment to psychiatry when they opened the doors to their sanitarium in 1925 and admitted its first 13 patients. They did not believe that the fate of mentally ill people was to be warehoused; they believed mental illness could be treated. The Menningers brought hope for troubled persons everywhere. Dr. Will's motto was "Brains, not bricks" to describe the importance of the staff.

Date: 1941-1949
