Cook County Hospital

Insanity Registers, 1877-1887

The three digitized registers in this collection are each quite unique from one another. The first book begins with basic information, stating only the name, nativity, age, and where they were discharged to. By February 1879 of the first register, which follows through to the second register, the format changes slightly to usually include a brief sentence or two with details about the case. The third register was recorded in a completely different printed format, which may include an address of residence, physical description, and details & remarks about the case.
