This is the second in a series of academically significant books by William A. Decker, M.D., Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, illustrating the development of public mental health services in the State of Michigan and United States. Dr. Decker was the last Medical Superintendent of Michigan's first State Hospital in Kalamazoo. "Northern Michigan Asylum" was published following several years of onsite archival research by Dr. Decker in Traverse City. Dr. Decker shares insights with readers learned from over five decades of first hand experience with the public mental health system at all levels. The book features many historic photos, charts, graphics and a highly detailed research bibliography to further help the reader.

This book is a great resource of historic photographs and information about the Traverse City Regional Psychiatric Hospital. This same author also wrote "Upper Peninsula Hospital" and "Asylum for the Insane" histories of other state hospitals in the state of Michigan! This is my favorite author!!Was this review helpful?
