Description

This collection of official reports of the Vermont Asylum for the Insane, while not comprehensive, contains important information about the changing administrative and medical practices and perspectives regarding the inmate population at the Asylum. Notably absent from the collection are reports for the early 1870s when insane asylums nationally and in Vermont underwent considerable public scrutiny. There is a gap between Superintendent Rockwell's 1868 report and last report in the series, submitted by Superintendent Draper in 1876.
