EDWARD SÉGUIN
Signature of the mental health pioneer, signed in Chicago in 1870
Printed Card signed in ink: "Edward Séguin/Chicago/14th Oct. 1870", 5x3¾ autograph card. French doctor Edward Séguin (1812-1881) emigrated to the US in 1848. Séguin favored compassion and understanding in dealing with the mentally retarded, and believed that their condition could be remedied or at least alleviated. Believing mental retardation a neurological condition, he advocated a regimen of physical exercise and sensory stimulation, accompanied by vocational training. He wrote several books, including Idiocy: Its Treatment by the Physiological Method (1866). Many of his physical exercises are still used in special education courses. Fine condition.
