Description

Excerpt from First Annual Report of the Trustees of the State Lunatic Hospital at Danvers: For the Year Ending September 30, 1878 The Trustees would further add, that in organizing, open ing, and managing the Danvers Hospital during the first six months, Dr. May has shown rare executive ability combined with practical medical skill, attributes invaluable in super intending a hospital for the insane, where close watching of subordinates is necessary at all times to insure proper care of the patients, and skilful medical treatment needed to restore them to health. Upon taking possession the Trustees found, as stated, alterations and additions needed. The outer walls required pointing and painting, as storms had penetrated them, and stained the inner ceilings and plastered walls; the first heavy rain, after the Trustees took charge, showed the north walls to be still defective. They learned, upon inquiry, that in ear lier storms the same defects had been apparent, and that the Commissioners had endeavored to remedy them by oiling the brick walls. After careful examination and conference with experts in order to find cause, it was clear that some of the mortar was poor, part of the brick-work badly laid, and in some places, under the copings, the bricks were loose.
