Detroit In Peril Of Insane Persons

The Border Cities Star, January 6, 1928
Superintendent Dr. Thomas K. Gruber responds in this article to the perilous situation of 500 insane folks in Detroit who needed treatment in 1928 by predicting that some act of violence by one of the afflicted would change the tide in the city towards the deficiency in mental health care. While the state contended that none of those on the waiting lists were dangerous sorts, Gruber thought otherwise, stating that for every dangerous patient received there was an equally dangerous one released.
