Iowa Hospital for the Insane. Clarinda.  Biennial report of the board of trustees of the Iowa Hospital for the Insane at Clarinda for the fiscal term ending June 30, 1897. Des Moines: F.R. Conaway, State printer, 1897. 8vo (22.5 cm, 9"). 67, [1] pp.
$300.00

The Clarinda State Hospital was built over the period of 1884 to 1888 and opened its doors in December of 1888. It was the third asylum in the state of Iowa. The original plan for patients was to hold alcoholics, geriatrics, drug addicts, mentally ill, and the criminally insane.
        This report contains facts, figures, and statistics on patients and the day to day running of the facility, including the surrounding farm and its animal husbandry.
        WorldCat seems to fail to find any institution holding any of the biennial reports of the board of trustees of the Clarinda hospital.

Original printed wrappers. Very good.  (40473)   Please RESHELVE This.
