Collection Historical Note

Karl Menninger was born in Topeka, Kansas on July 22, 1893. He studied at Washburn University, Indiana University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He also studied medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Menninger worked at the Boston Psychopathic Hospital and taught at Harvard Medical School. In 1919, after returning to Topeka, he and his father founded the Menninger Clinic. In 1925, the clinic accumulated enough investors to build the Menninger Sanitarium. Later, in 1930, Menninger published his book “The Human Mind” which explains the science behind psychiatry.

In 1941, he established the Menninger Foundation. After World War II, he helped found the Winter Veterans Administration Hospital in Topeka. It became the largest psychiatric training center in the world. Menninger was also one of the first members of the Society for General Systems Research.

In 1946, Menninger founded the Menninger School of Psychiatry. In 1985, it was renamed to Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry and Mental Health Science.

Karl Menninger passed away July 18, 1990.
