Insane in the Physical Membrane Only

Detroit Free Press, May 29, 1929
Deemed insane by her doctor husband Helen Walker was sent to Eloise by the court at the recommendation of two testifying physicians. Eight months later she was released due to her being adjudged medically insane but not mentally unbalanced. Sounds like semantics to me but maybe the doctor wanted to rid himself of a problem and this was the roundabout way of getting a divorce without him looking like the bad guy.
