KARL MENNINGER. TLS: "Karl", 1p, 8½x11. Topeka, Kansas, 1950 May 25. On letterhead of The Menninger Foundation to Mr. H.B. Clemenko, Medical Editor, Look, New York, New York. In full: "I was sorry I didn't get to see you in New York, but you can imagine how busy I was, and I know how busy you were. I had lunch with Mr. Charles Schlaifer who said he knew you well, and I hope you will have occasion in the next few days to talk to him and tell him a little about your impressions. Sincerely yours". Karl Augustus 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 enter. 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 creased with folds, lower horizontal fold touches the flourish of the end of the signature. Slightly soiled at lower right margin. Fine condition.
