Abstract

My active internship experience this Spring Term 2018 was with medical patients’ records from the 20th century Progressive era through to the Depression of the 1930s accessed from the Oregon State Archives. The records help to illuminate the existence of Progressive ideals which were to rehabilitate patients through institutionalization and rehabilitation and the new science of psychiatry. The sources and records show that the ideals of the Progressive reformers in Oregon fell short of the realities of the Oregon State Hospital.
