The first historian ever granted access to these exceptional medical records Lamb offers a compelling new perspective on the integral but misunderstood legacy of Adolf Meyer. Illuminating the contributions of Adolf Meyer the pioneering father of modern American psychiatry. Winner of the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title of the Choice ACRL During the first half of the twentieth century Adolf Meyer was the most authoritative and influential psychiatrist in the United States. In 1908 when the Johns Hopkins Hospital established the first American university clinic devoted to psychiatry–still a nascent medical specialty at the time–Meyer was selected to oversee the enterprise. The Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic opened in 1913 and Meyer served as psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins until 1941. In Pathologist of the Mind S. D. Lamb explores how Meyer used his powerful position to establish psychiatry as a clinical science that operated like the other specialties at the country s foremost medical school and research hospital. In addition to successfully arguing for a scientific and biological approach to mental illness Meyer held extraordinary sway over state policies regarding the certification of psychiatrists. He also trained hundreds of specialists who ultimately occupied leadership positions and made significant contributions in psychiatry neurology experimental psychology social work and public health. Although historians have long recognized Meyer s authority his concepts and methods have never before received a systematic historical analysis. Pathologist of the Mind aims to rediscover Meyerian psychiatry by eavesdropping on Meyer s informal and intimate conversations with patients and colleagues. Weaving together private correspondence and uniquely detailed case histories Lamb examines Meyer s efforts to institute a clinical science of psychiatry in the United States–one that harmonized the expectations of scientific medicine with his concept of the person as a biological organism and mental illness as an adaptive failure. The first historian ever granted access to these exceptional medical records Lamb offers a compelling new perspective on the integral but misunderstood legacy of Adolf Meyer.
