The Retreat, opened in 1824, serves as a significant but relatively neglected example of how perspectives on mental illness changed during the 19th century, says Goodheart (history, U. of Connecticut- Hartford). It was the only mental asylum founded by a state medical society, and became a model of moral treatment. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
