KARL A. MENNINGER Oversized 11½x16¾ b/w photo by Fabian Bachrach of psychiatrist Karl Menninger in a suit and tie and resting folded hands on a book, signed in blue ink in 1961 Photograph signed "Karl Menninger,/1961" in blue ink. Labels and pencil notations on verso. B/w, 11½x16¾ overall, 11½x14½ image, one surface, printed on cardstock. Photo by Fabian Bachrach. Card affixed to bottom left corner, captioned: "Karl A. Menninger, M.D./Psychiatrist/Menninger Foundation, Topeka, Kansas". Menninger (1893-1990), the son of psychiatrist Charles Frederick Menninger and brother of psychiatrist William Menninger (the first psychiatrist to be featured on the cover of "Time" magazine), co-founded the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas with his father in 1919. They were joined by William in 1925, the year that the Menninger's had raised enough support to build the Menninger Sanitorium. The Menninger Foundation was founded in 1941 and quickly became a major U.S. psychiatric and psychoanalytic center. Menninger is credited with crusading against the stigma of mental illness and bringing an understanding of psychiatry to the public, largely through his writings, including The Human Mind (1930), the first of Menninger's 14 books. The book, written for fellow mental health professionals, was a popular success as well. Menninger was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1981. Lightly toned and soiled. Adhesive residue near card and in bottom right corner. Top edge of photo is chipped. Left and right edges are scuffed. Card is discolored along left and bottom edges, which touches signature. Black tape residue on verso, which shows along edges but does not show through. Otherwise in fine condition.
