Additional Information for Researchers

Ownership/Custodial Hist.: The papers found in this sub-set of the Menninger Foundation's corporate records consist of materials donated from individuals who were affiliated with the foundation in some concrete way. Generally these individuals were employed by the foundation as therapeutic, research, or administrative staff; they served on the Board of Trustees; they were students with the Menninger School of Psychiatry; or they were patients treated at the Menninger Clinic or C.F. Menninger Memorial Hospital.

Materials that came to the Menninger Foundation Archives from individuals who apparently had no relation to the foundation have been transferred to the Historic Psychiatry sub-collection.
