Description

The Supervisors write, "We have for some time been looking for the peak in our insane population in the hospitals, but that time evidently has not yet arrived. This is due, not so much because of increase of insanity, as to the fact that individuals and towns are more and more tending toward the hospitalization of mental, medical, and surgical cases" (p. 5).
The Supervisors also note that, while the Weeks Building was completed and occupied in 1925, the institution would need additional buildings soon to meet the continuing rise in commitments (p. 4).
