During my college years,in the summer of 1982, I worked in St Louis for an architectural firm as a surveyor. The project was doing "reverse blueprints" on an old Mental hospital--St. Vincents's. The original blueprints were lost, so we measured every dimension of the building, so draftsmen could re-draw the blueprints. It was a fun and sometimes fascinating job-exploring this nearly 100 year-old massive "Insane Asylum". In one of the 3 sub-basements, I found a water-logged box of old medical records, dating back to 1913. They make fascinating reading.

St. Vincents Asylum
My grandfather was treated there in 1893 or 894. Do you have any records going back that far. His name was Albert P. Stidham from Eufaula, Oklahoma. My email is [email protected]

St Vincent's
Does anyone know where one could obtain medical records or patient information from the 1950 (?). My mother was a patient @ the hospital around 1950 - 1953. My mother is now deceased. My family never explained anything about her stay @ the hospital. That type of thing was not discussed back in the day. The way I understand it is it was a private asylum and my grandfather paid for my mother's stay. My mother had a severe nervous breakdown, actually had a lobotomy, then stayed @ this asylum for 3 years, then transferred to the hospital on Arsenal St. for another 3 - 4 years. She eventually got out of the hospital, went on the have two children, but was never quite mentally "all there" for the remainder of her life.
The most ironic thing is that she moved into the St. Vincent's Hospital after it was renovated into apts. years later. She never mentioned or talked about being a patient at the location years earlier. Any information would be so appreciated.

childhood records
would anyone be able to tell me where i could obtain copies of my hospital records from 1971-1972? I was a child, age 9-10 at the time... my parents put me there, apparently because of "depression" and my memories are very blurry (most likely due to drugs). I was the only child in this adult ward,and now, at age 51, i still think about this experience. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.Thanks to anyone who can help :-) my email is danac541@yahoo

Green Co, Mo. records
My friends family is trying to prove or disprove the old rumor that their Grandfather drove their Grandmother, Dona Catherine Chadwick Mason, b. 1883 in Georgia, insane from inhumane treatment. Dona is listed in the 1910 census but is not shown in the 1920 census. The rumor is that she was in what was called an "insane asylum" after that. Any help will be appreciated. Her husbands name was John Marshall Mason, b. 1874 d. 1943. He was also m. in 1894 to Viola Harris, b. 1872 in Tn.
I can be contacted at [email protected]

Great Aunt's Records
My great aunt, Mary Winchester, was a patient at St. Vincent's in the first decade of the 1900's. she had a brother, Robert Winchester, my grandfather who worked in St. Louis, so I believe he was the only one to check in on her while she was there. They were both Natchez, Mississippi natives. Any information on my great aunt and/or how to obtain copies of any existing records would be much appreciated.

My contact information is [email protected]

Many thanks.

Medical records
I, too, had a mother admitted there in October 1975 - Her name was Carol Kelley Stodghill and her DOB was 2-15-22. Any one know how I can get her medical records? I remember it as a horrible place - the orderly beat my mother because she sisn't want to go into the "quiet room" I was 15 at the time. Shortly after we moved her from here to Jewish Hospital she died.
