Scope and Content Note

This series consists of moving image media, including both videotapes and motion picture films. Some of the film is original and dates to the 1930s; some of the videotapes are duplicates of the films. Subjects and titles include "Out of the Shadows: Admission of a Patient," (1930); "The Patient Needs All of Us" (n.d.); and an open houses television special (1972).

Some of the films were used for staff training; others were for public relations purposes, such as the film "Out of the Shadows: Admission of a Patient" which was made to publicize conditions of a typical state hospital in 1930. At that time a proposal was submitted to voters for an issue of fifty million dollars to increase the accommodations of state institutions, to relieve overcrowding and to provide for new institutions.
