Flo V. Menninger was the wife of Dr. C. F. Menninger and mother of Karl, Edwin, and William. Karl and William became physicians and with their father established in 1919 the first group psychiatry practice. It developed into the Menninger Clinic, a facility for mental-health treatment, education, research, and prevention. Flo was trained as a teacher. She wrote a book "Days of My Life : Memories of a Kansas Mother and Teacher." She also wrote the curriculum for a Bible study group, a four- year program which is still being taught today.
