A photograph of the East and West Lodges of the Menninger Sanitarium in Topeka. It was taken by Dr. J. A. Crabb, a local physician and a member of the first Board of Directors, Menninger Sanitariumn Corporation. In 1925, the Menninger Sanitarium Corporation purchased a farmhouse on the west edge of Topeka, Kansas. The farmhouse became the inpatient clinic and the surrounding 20 acres were developed with buildings and gardens to become the "East Campus" of the Menninger Foundation. In 1982, the "West Campus", a much larger area, was developed west of Topeka, a residential scale community of 28 structures on a 350 acre hilltop campus. In 2003, the Menninger Foundation was moved to Houston, Texas.

Date: 1932
