This exhibit was for the 90th Kansas Medical Society meeting in May, 1949. Dr. C.F. Menninger and his sons, Dr. Karl and Dr. Will, formed a group psychiatry practice in 1919. The Menninger Clinic as a sanitarium was established in 1925 with the purchase of a farm house and admittance of 12 patients. The philosophy was that mental illness could be treated with an integrated medical, psychodynamic, and developmental approach for the total health of patients. The Menninger Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to treatment, training and research in mental illness. It was established in Topeka and moved to Houston, Texas in June 2003.
