dc.description.abstractThe following history of the Michigan Asylum for the Insane during Van Deusen's superintendency is split into two parts. First, in an attempt to give the reader some understanding of the background into which the Michigan Asylum fit, a general history of the treatment of the insane up until the time that the Michigan Asylum was incorporated is given. It is believed that without such an understanding, it would be almost impossible to comprehend the reasoning behind most of the events that occurred. The Asylum did not exist in a vacuum. It had to respond to external pressures placed in it from the local, state, national, and even international levels. The second part of this study is a more specific history of the Michigan Asylum for the Insane during the superintendency of Dr. Edward H. Van Deusen.en_US
