0434 Owen Clinic Institute Papers, 1948-1975
Marshall University Archives and Special Collections
This item is a bound special edition hardback collection of each of the monthly newsletters published in December 1962. This edition features a special navy blue cover, green ink text, and colorful full page drawings such as maps. The patients created the newsletter, from writing the articles to creating the drawings, for it to be sold to the greater Huntington community in exchange for donations. The newsletters give valuable insight into patient lifestyle, mental healthcare at the time, and various other topics that pertain to the Clinic and Huntington society overall. The patients mostly wrote under pseudonyms to protect identities, but certain staff and doctors are referenced by name. Their work allows the reader to see a unique patient perspective on almost every topic and current events, as the patients even have a special section focusing on the happenings with the United Nations.
