News-Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1963, Mansfield, OhioThe or Rickle Road to Reform shed Light on shame by Al Obrick gov. James Rhodes Broom act which swept employees off the state payroll directed new at Tention to state mental institutions. Authorities said vital programs were endangered. Possibly so. Programs referred to resulted from unfavourable publicity. Life Magazine years Back first put the spotlight on it in an article titled the shame of such is the Way to Reform the White Glare of Public exposure reaching into dark Corners galvanizing responsible officials into action. It was that process that first resulted in a revolutionary change in attitude toward the mentally ill about a Century ago. They were in effect re admitted to the human race from which they had been expelled by ignorance and superstition. This upheaval in Public thinking was brought about almost single hand edly by a slender new England teacher named Dorothea Lynde who never has quite received the i cog nation due her. Nervous and not at All Strong it was Only an extremity of horror that drove the shy spinster to a career As mover and Shaker of Public opinion. Like Paul on the Road to Damascus she saw the Light in a blinding Flash that tormented her the rest of her life. It came on a sunday in March 1861 when Dorothea went to the House of correction in East Cambridge mass., to take Over a sunday school class. There she observed four persons confined k a single dark room with Walls whitened by Frost. They were just harmless she was told nothing to concern herself about. But the sight was burned into her mind and would not let her rest. Conditions in East Cambridge were not out of the Ordi nary and in fact were an improvement or. The treatment accorded these unfortunates in some other less enlightened communities. An insane person was no longer considered by the Devil possessed but insanity was regarded at least As a mental and moral perversion an impurity. The insane were often chained and frequently exhibited for a Small admission fee As a tourist attraction. One historian re cords it was considered Good spoil to watch the Odd creatures to listen to the fantasies of their ravings even to goad them to fury by questions or by prodding them if sullen with Sticks provided for that this Only about 120 years ago. Goaded by what she had observed Dorothea Dix still did not strike with sudden fury. For two years she carefully investigated conditions in Massachusetts. Then she addressed herself to the government of the state. I proceed gentlemen briefly to Call your attention to tie present state of insane persons within this Commonwealth m cages closets cellars stalls pens chained naked. Beaten with rods. Lashed into she recited chapter and verse. Those in authority might launch a general counter attack on her motives and the unsuitability of a woman concerning herself with such matters but they could not contradict her facts. Dorothea repeated her performance in other states and even carried her crusade Over seas to great Britain. She died at 80 having served in the civil War As head of the Union army s nursing corps. There still remained at her death vast room for improve ment in care of the mentally ill and As conditions so recently exposed in Ohio have shown there is far to go yet. But thanks to Dorothea Dix the mentally ill were finally recognized As members of the human family and a beginning was made in showing them humanity.
