  • Description is exactly "This pedigree features a man with microcephaly who had bounced between various institutions throughout his first 23 years. Because Vermont did not have its own institution for "feebleminded children" until 1915, the Burlington Overseer of the Poor originally sent this individual to the Waverly School for FeeblemInded in Massachusetts. He was transferred to the Vermont States School for Feebleminded Children in 1916 but also spent time at the Vermont State Hospital. His stated diagnosis is "Psychosis with Mental Deficiency. A sex pervert, congenital.""
