Processing Information

The Western State Hospital collection came to the Library of Virginia in multiple accessions over two decades. In many cases, the original order of the material had been disturbed or was unidentifiable. In other instances, the provenance was unclear and an educated guess was made as to which person or office created the records. Care was taken to maintain the original order when possible, but for the most part, the arrangement of this collection is artificial. The series names and groupings were devised by the processing archivist in an attempt to create logical divisions within this large collection. Cross-references can be found in many series descriptions that will point the researcher to similar material in other series.

Additionally, separate box and volume numbering systems were imposed by the processing archivist for finding aid and stack location identification purposes. The box and volume numbers should be used when requesting material, but are not always in strict numerical order.

Researchers should also note that Series VI. of this finding aid describes correspondence, contracts, agreements, buildings and grounds records and other miscellaneous documents that were found during a records transfer at Eastern State Hospital in Williamsburg, Virginia in February 2010. Many of the documents were created and used by building superintendent and architect Thomas R. Blackburn. According to records at Eastern State and Western State, these items were removed from the Western State Hospital archives in 1983 and used by researchers to accurately reconstruct the Public Hospital at Colonial Williamsburg. The records were never returned to Western State and were eventually found in a basement at Eastern State in 1987. The records were taken to the Eastern State archives where they were housed until the hospital transferred its historical records to the Library of Virginia in 2010. The records in Series VI. remain part of Eastern State Hospital accession 44812.

Accession 50989 came from the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents, which was previously known as the DeJarnette State Sanatorium. Because of the overlap between these records and the records found in the Western State Hospital records, as well as the fact that Joseph DeJarnette was the superintendent of both facilities, these records have been interegrated into this collection as Series VII.

Historical Information

In January 1825 the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation providing for the construction of an asylum in the western part of the state. A Court of Directors was commissioned by the Governor to serve as the asylum's governing body and charged with purchasing a site close to the town of Staunton, west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, on which to build an asylum to house the mentally ill of western Virginia. The institution, which became known as Western Lunatic Asylum, was the second mental health facility built in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The buildings and surrounding gardens were designed to embrace the idea of "moral therapy" for mentally ill patients by providing an aesthetically pleasing and tranquil atmosphere in which patients lived comfortably, exercised and worked outdoors.

Western Lunatic Asylum opened in 1828, accepting both male and female patients suffering from a variety of mental disorders. Common diagnoses included "hard study," "religious excitement," and "debility of the nervous system." The asylum was overseen by a Keeper, a Matron and a visiting physician during its earliest years. The hospital also employed attendants, gate keepers, night watch personnel, farm hands, and a steward who handled the day-to-day financial operations. The first superintendent appointed to oversee Western Lunatic Asylum was Dr. Francis T. Stribling. Dr. Stribling was a proponent of the moral therapy approach, and was a leader in the early mental health community. Dr. Stribling was one of the thirteen founders of the Association of Medical Superintendents of American Institutions for the Insane, which later became known as the American Psychiatric Association. Dr. Stribling served as the hospital superintendent and as a physician until his death in 1874.

It should be noted that the hospital underwent a short-lived name change between 1861 and 1865, when it was known as Central Lunatic Asylum. (It should not be confused with an asylum of the same name later built in Petersburg, Virginia to house African American patients). From 1865 to 1894 the name was again Western Lunatic Asylum. However, in 1894 the General Assembly passed legislation changing the name to Western State Hospital.

Another highly influential superintendent at Western State Hospital was Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette. Dr. DeJarnette was hired as a physician in 1889 and was appointed superintendent in 1905. His tenure was the longest of any superintendent at Western State. Dr. DeJarnette was also responsible for founding the DeJarnette State Sanatorium, which housed patients with the ability to pay for their treatment. Dr. DeJarnette remained the superintendent of Western State for 38 years, retiring in 1943 with many accolades. He served as superintendent of the sanatorium from its formation in 1932 to his full retirement in 1947. Dr. DeJarnette's involvement in the eugenics movement and his support of the involuntary sterilization of mental patients has in more recent years earned him a less favorable reputation.

Many of Western State Hospital's original structures remain standing on what is referred to as the "Old Site." Many of these structures are historically and architecturally significant and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. During the 1960s a newer hospital facility was constructed, and over the next decade patients and programs were slowly moved to the "New Site." Deinstitutionalization efforts and increased focus on localized community programs resulted in lower patient census numbers starting in the 1970s, and by the mid-1970s the Old Site had shut down completely. The Old Site was later converted into Staunton Correctional Center, which it remained until its closure in late 2002. The original grounds of Western State Hospital were eventually sold and are being converted into condominiums and retail space as part of an urban redevelopment plan.

Western State Hospital continues to serve the mental health needs of Virginia's citizens from the New Site in Staunton, Virginia. The hospital is part of the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) and is governed by the State Board of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.

Scope and Content

The Western State Hospital collection contains a wide variety of bound volumes and paper records spanning more than 170 years (1825-1998). Included are administrative records such as annual reports, correspondence, office and subject files, meeting minutes, newsletters, photographs, and reports, as well as a specific departmental and program records relating to the Community Hospital Industrial Rehabilitation Program (CHIRP), the DeJarnette State Sanatorium, and the Shenandoah Geriatric Treatment Center (SGTC). Also included are financial records such as auditor's books, budget files, farm production records, and supply inventories. The patient-related records include admission registers, commitment papers, medical records, and several types of patient lists. Also included in this collection are a variety of report books created and maintained by staff members regarding patient admissions, attendants' rounds, ward activities, and many other duties performed at the hospital. The records of the Western State Hospital document many facets of the institution's operational history, patient life and medical treatment, as well as the evolution of mental health treatment in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

This series serves as a "catch-all" for records without a definite office of origin, but which shed light on various aspects of the administration of Western State Hospital. Most of the records originated from or are thought to have been created and/or collected by the Superintendent (also known as the "Director") of the hospital. However, some records may have been created and collected by other departments or offices. Though the provenance may be unclear in some cases, these records document the history of the institution and its various day-to-day activities.

    • Western State Hospital, 1836-1994.

      Contains the annual reports of Western State Hospital that were submitted to the General Assembly by the Court or Board of Directors every year. Researchers should note that Western State Hospital has changed names several times during its history. In its earliest years it was sometimes referred to as "Western Hospital," as well as the more commonly used, "Western Lunatic Asylum." Between 1861 and 1865, it was known as Central Lunatic Asylum (not to be confused with the hospital of the same name later built in Petersburg, Virginia). The name was eventually changed to Western State Hospital by an Act of the General Assembly in 1894. The reports were compiled by the superintendent and contain financial information, as well as patient-related statistics. These charts often note specific mental conditions, place of patient origin, and if or when an elopement, discharge or death occurred. Other topics are addressed when necessary, and include discussions of medical techniques, equipment or employment needs, patient life, and overall management of the hospital. All of the earliest reports are handwritten, and some are merely rough drafts or notes. Since this is not a comprehensive collection of annual reports, it may be necessary to look elsewhere for those that are missing. In the earliest years, annual reports for state institutions were part of the rough journals of the House of Delegates (1826-1846). Later, they became part of the Governor's message and annual reports of the public officers of the state (1847-1860s). Annual reports for all of Virginia's state agencies (1860s and beyond) were bound together as "Annual Reports of Officers, Boards and Institutions of the Commonwealth of Virginia," (call no. JK3930.A21). Additional annual reports for Western Lunatic Asylum, most notably the report from 1861, can be found in the Records of Eastern State Hospital.

  • Series I., Subseries B. Board of Directors Records (and State Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services Board Records), 1825-1991.

    Contains a variety of general files and meeting minutes created by and for the State Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services Board and all of its earlier incarnations. The history of the Board begins with the Court of Directors which was established as soon as the General Assembly approved construction of the asylum in 1825. In its earliest years, the directors met as frequently as necessary, sometimes several times each month. In later years, the meetings became monthly or bi-monthly. The Court of Directors was later renamed the Board of Directors, and its nine appointed members were required to meet on a quarterly basis. In 1903, the Board of Directors was replaced by a three-person group called the Special Board of Directors. This board answered to the newly-created General Board of Directors, which was composed of all the members of each hospital's Special Board. The General Board connected all of the state-run hospitals for the first time. In 1937 the individual Special Boards were abolished, and the General Board was renamed the State Hospital Board. This board consisted of seven members who were responsible for the management of all the state-run hospitals. This board was required to meet at least once each year at each hospital. In later years, the Board met on a monthly or twice-monthly basis. The State Hospital Board became the State Mental Health and Mental Retardation Board in 1973, and then the State Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services Board in 1987. All Board records created prior to 1937 are specific to Western State Hospital, while those created after 1937 include information on all of the state-run hospitals. For information on the Executive Committee (a subcommittee of the Western State Board of Directors), please see Series I. Administrative Records, Subseries G. Executive Committee Records, as well as Series I. Administrative Records, Subseries N. Reports. The items within the Board of Directors general files were found loose within accessions 31030 and 41404. The meeting minutes are part of accessions 31353, 31704, and 41404.

    • General Files, 1831-1943.

      Contains miscellaneous material related to the activities of the Board of Directors, the Special Board of Directors, or the State Hospital Board, depending on the date of the document. The files include resolutions, orders, letters, petitions, and reports. The report to Governor John Floyd was not originally part of the collection, but found in the Governor's Executive Papers. A photocopy of the document was made, and due to its significance, it was arranged along with the Western State material.

      Arranged alphabetically according to the name of the entity.

    • Meeting Minutes, 1825-1991.

      Restricted: Meeting minutes that are less than 125 years old. Due to the presence of restricted patient information, these records may require review by an archivist and/or redaction (if it is possible) before they are served. Contains detailed minutes of the meetings of the Court of Directors, Board of Directors (also referred to as the "Directory"), and the Special Board of Directors of Western State Hospital. Also included here are minutes of the meetings of the General Board of Directors, the State Hospital Board, the State Mental Health and Mental Retardation Board, and the State Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services Board, depending on the date of the document. The minutes give insight into the decision-making processes and governance of Western State Hospital, as well as the other state hospitals. A few of the early minute books have overlapping dates and many identical entries. However, in some cases one book may have minutes that the other does not, so it would be beneficial to consult both for research purposes. Some of the later loose minutes have agendas and correspondence attached. Additionally, there are several hospital inspection reports included within the minutes for the 1940s.

  • Series I., Subseries C. Buildings, Facilities and Grounds Records, 1828-1994.

    Contains office files and drawings pertaining to the hospital grounds, at both the New and Old Sites. The office files document maintenance and upkeep, insurance matters, building dedications, and other issues pertaining to the Western State Hospital facility and campus. It is unclear which office or person created and maintained the files, but they may have originated in the Office of the Superintendent. Of particular note are the Fire Insurance Inspection Reports which give detailed accounts of the structures present at the Old Site in the 1960s. The report includes information about the use of buildings, dates of construction, materials used, and value. Each structure is detailed individually, most have a photograph attached as well. Additional photographs of the buildings (exteriors and interiors) at the Old Site and New Site can be found in Series I. Administrative Records, Subseries K. Photographs and Slides. An older fireproofing report, including architectural renderings, can be found in this subseries under "Drawings and Plans." Some of the older files include handwritten documents describing the hospital's gas works, water system, and construction projects (Box 18, Folders 3, 5, 19, 26). Many of these documents were written by Thomas R. Blackburn, the building superintendent and former architectural student of Thomas Jefferson. Researchers interested in the early years of Western State should also consult Series I. Administrative Records, Subseries D. Correspondence, (Box 19, Folder 2) which contains several documents relating to the construction of the original hospital buildings. This file includes a rather detailed sketch of the early building and its dimensions drawn by Baltimore architect William Small. There are also several letters from the hospital gardener, William Wood, that describe his work on the grounds of the hospital (Box 53, Folder 15). Additional construction-related letters can be found in the 1890 correspondence file (Box 61, Folder 22). Meeting minutes for the Local Building Committee and its later incarnation, the Institutional Executive Committee, can be found in Series I. Administrative Records, Subseries I. Meeting Minutes. Additionally, an 1835 Building Committee report can be found in Series I. Administrative Records, Subseries N. Reports. Researchers should also note additional buildings and grounds records (1825-1873), including a workbook belonging to building superintendent, Thomas Blackburn, can be found in Series VI. Records Found at Eastern State Hospital (Accession 44812). Most of the drawings and plans are of buildings located at the New Site, many of which were done by the architectural firm of Marcellus Wright and Son. A few drawings of the Old Site are included, such as those of the proposed court yard area and canteen. The report on fireproofing includes an outdoor site plan and several architectural renderings of the wards. The material found in this subseries was originally part of accessions 41404 and 31030.

    The files and drawings are arranged alphabetically.

  • Series I., Subseries D. Correspondence, 1825-1944.

    Contains correspondence-related material including lists of correspondents, correspondence registers, postal and delivery records, general correspondence files, and the outgoing letter file of Dr. Joseph DeJarnette. The outgoing letter file was separated from the general correspondence because it arrived as its own separate entity within the collection. As a side note, lunacy and commitment papers that were originally housed with the correspondence can be found in Series IV. Patient Records, Subseries D. Commitment Records. The earliest correspondence files are part of accession 31030, while some letters (mostly post-1900) are part of accession 41404. The correspondence lists and registers, as well as Dr. DeJarnette's outgoing letters are part of accession 41404.

    • Correspondent Lists, Undated.

      Contains lists of correspondents, most of whom wrote to inquire about specific patients. It appears that the lists were most likely kept by the hospital superintendent. The individual registers are arranged in loose alphabetical order and provide the correspondent's name, the name of the patient or "subject," the correspondent's address, and his or her relation to the patient. All of the correspondent lists are undated, but the dates have been roughly estimated. The first volume dates from sometime before 1874 because Dr. Francis Stribling's handwriting is found in it. The earliest list contains correspondents for both male and female patients. The other four registers are divided according to the sex of the patient. There are two lists devoted to correspondents inquiring about male patients and two lists for female patients. Two of the registers have "Correspondence, W.S.H." stamped on the cover, along with "Male" or "Female." They are believed to date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. The final two registers have no information on the cover and are thought to have been created and utilized during the 1910s to 1920s. The four later registers contain loose correspondence and notes, which were used to formulate the approximate dates. The last item listed is an unidentified and undated address book. It is uncertain whether the contacts listed are related to patients.

      Arranged chronologically.

        Male and Female Patients, Undated (circa pre-1874 to late 1800s).

    • Correspondence Registers, 1837-1883.

      Contains registers of correspondence-related records that appear to ahve been kept by the hospital superintendent. The first volume includes a list of correspondents, a list of applications received, and a list of patients written for, in addition to lists of letters received and written. This volume also contains a list of accounts rendered against patients and several short memos of a general nature. The second register contains lists of letters both written and received. The third register contains only a list of letters written, but the fourth contains only records of letters received. The fifth ledger again lists letters written.

      Arranged chronologically.

      • Volume 17
        1837-1843.
      • Volume 18
        1843-1849.
      • Volume 19
        1850-1861 (Letters written).

      • Volume 21
        1876-1883 (Letters written).
    • Postal and Delivery Records, 1885-1894.

      Contains one ledger which documents incoming parcels and deliveries received at Western State, both for patients and hospital staff. Recorded in this ledger are the date, type of article, from whom it came, to whom it was sent, whether it was paid for, and other various remarks. It is believed that this ledger was kept by the hospital superintendent. Researchers should note that additional parcel post records specifically regarding patients can be found in Series IV. Patient Records, Subseries I. Postal Records.

      Arranged chronologically.

      • Volume 22
        1885-1894.
    • Superintendent's Correspondence Files, 1825-1942.

      Restricted: Correspondence containing patient names and information that is less than 125 years old. These records may require review by an archivist and/or redaction (if it is possible) before they are served. Contains correspondence files from the superintendent's office. The correspondence has been divided into three subgroups: correspondence, subject correspondence, and surveys. The largest of these groups is the general correspondence files which contain incoming letters addressed to the hospital superintendent. The letters and surveys give insight into the daily work of the hospital superintendent and document the earliest years of Western State Hospital, and Virginia's mental health treatment system in general. Researchers should be be aware that some of the correspondence may contain mold due to past exposure to water. Although now stabilized, some spores may still be present. As a result of the water damage, many of the documents are fragile and discolored, and must be handled with care. Researchers should also note that additional superintendent's correspondence (1835-1918) can be found in Series VI. Records Found at Eastern State Hospital (Accession 44812).

      • Correspondence, 1825-1942.

        Contains mostly incoming letters addressed to the hospital superintendent. Some draft copies of outgoing letters are also present and are filed according to the last name of the recipient. Several different types of letters are included in the correspondence. For the most part, the material is in the form of letters from concerned friends and family members in regard to the conditions of specific patients. However, many of the letters in this subseries are in the form of patient applications from private citizens and jailors needing to place an insane person. In the earliest years of correspondence, the superintendent wrote "no vacancy" on the original request, if there was no room to house the patient. Researchers may find some physician's reports about patients in the correspondence, since many were sent to the superintendent as letters. The physicians would often answer the same questions found on the interrogatories in the commitment papers. Researchers should note that commitment papers can be found in Series IV. Patient Records, Subseries D. Commitment Papers.

        In some cases, the letters are written directly to the patient. Letters sent to inmates from outsiders appear to have been screened by the superintendent. He deemed whether the patient could have the letter or not, whether family members should continue writing, and whether patients could write back. Notable letters include, James K. Dabney's letter to Governor James L. Kemper accusing the hospital of false imprisonment (Box 51, Folder 5), a letter from a man by the last name of Halyburton who wrote to his mother about rotten food served to patients (Box 51, Folder 10), and notes written by Thomas R. Evans to the hospital superintendent complaining of various problems and poor treatment (Box 51, Folder 6). In other cases, former patients wrote to the superintendent, such as a man named John Jones of Hanover County, who accuses the hospital and its doctors, and many other organizations and people of grievious wrongdoing (Box 25, Folder 18), (Box 29, Folder 4) and (Box 30, Folder 18).

        There are many topics of particular historical interest featured in the correspondence files. Information on building construction is featured sporadically throughout. The 1825 folder contains several documents related to the construction of Western State, accompanied by a detailed sketch of the building and its dimensions (Box 19, Folder 2). Additionally, the entire 1890 folder of correspondence revolves around the construction of a new building (Box 61, Folder 22).

        Also included are many letters are from various Virginia politicians, mostly members of the General Assembly or the Office of the Auditor of Public Accounts, which pertain to money issues and legislation affecting Western State Hospital. Letters from the Auditor's office can be found interpersed throughout the folders from 1836, 1840, and 1841. Letters from legislators and those interested in hospital affairs can be found in (Box 20, Folder 17), (Box 34, Folders 19-20), (Box 35, Folders 7-9), (Box 36, Folders 18-19), (Box 41, Folder 14), (Box 50, Folder 25) and (Box 51, Folders 1-2). Letters from various Virginia governors such as Governor Westmoreland Davis (Box 62, Folder 7), Governor E. Lee Trinkle (Box 62, Folder 8 and Box 62, Folder 12), Governor Harry F. Byrd (Box 62, Folder 10; Box 62, Folder 11; Box 62, Folder 13; and Box 62, Folder 21), Governor George C. Peery (Box 62, Folder 20), as well as Governors James H. Price and Colgate W. Darden, Jr. (Box 62, Folder 21). Many of the letters are thank-you notes or congratulatory in nature. Also included in the post-1900 correspondence is discussion of budgetary matters (Box 62, Folder 8).

        Correspondence during the Civil War years is sparse, but the volume greatly increases in the years following the war. The letters from 1865-67 show the economic downturn many Virginians faced, and it appears that there was an increase in the number of letters of application. Notable letters include those written by John R. Edmunds who wrote about the unsettled relations between the black and white populations (Box 43, Folder 4), and by a former slave named Harrison Kyle who wrote to the superintendent to inquire about the condition of his former owner (Box 43, Folder 12). A letter written by Dr. D. Lamatin from Howard's Grove Hospital in Richmond wrote to Dr. Francis Stribling for information that might help him establish a new hospital for blacks (Box 44, Folder 21). That institution would later become known as Central State Hospital. Also of note is a letter from Dr. Martin P. Scott who wrote seeking evidence to prove that emancipation caused an increase in African American insanity (Box 55, Folder 24). For information on John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, please see letters written by James M. Hite (Box 38, Folder 9) and John Q. Marr (Box 38, Folder 17). In the letters Hite discusses the incident in terms of government response, while Marr wrote about the public's response, both white and black.

        Another topic of interest is the correspondence between the superintendents of Western Lunatic Asylum and Eastern Lunatic Asylum in Williamsburg. Robert M. Garrett, a former superintendent of Eastern State wrote to Dr. Stribling about his ouster from office and illegal actions taken by the Board of Directors (Box 43, Folder 7). In another letter, Dr. C.S. Mills describes the suicide death of Garrett's successor, Dr. Peticolas (Box 43, Folder 14). In a letter to Dr. Stribling written by Dr. D.R. Brower of Eastern, it is revealed that many of the "books and most of the record of the asylum [Eastern State Hospital] had been scattered to the four winds," (Box 44, Folder 8). Additionally, the folder of 1892 correspondence contains letters between Eastern and Western administrators that touch on unhappy employees, fees, and the presence of inebriates at the hospitals (Box 61, Folder 23).

        There are several unexplained gaps within the superintendent's correspondence. In some cases, the gaps are alphabetical, in others the gaps are chronological. Generally, the quantity of letters diminishes after 1879. The correspondence after 1900 focuses less on patients and family members, and more on business practices, policies and budgetary matters. The correspondence is arranged chronologically by year, then alphabetically within. However, there is no order within the folder(s) associated with a particular letter of the alphabet. Letters with illegible or missing names are filed in the last folder of the year in which they were written. Researchers should note that additional correspondence files dating from 1907 to 1944 are located separately from the general superintendent's correspondence, but also in this subseries, under the heading of Superintendent's Correspondence Files: Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette.

        Contains several files of superintendent's correspondence that were previously arranged apart from the general correspondence. Included here are letters to Dr. Francis Stribling from social reformer Dorothea Dix. Dix was well-known as a crusader on behalf of the indigent insane. Her letters detail her travels and experiences at other hospitals. The correspondence begins in the 1840s and ends in the 1870s. Researchers should note that the Stribling letters to Dix are located at Houghton Library at Harvard University. Also included are folders of correspondence regarding the relationship between the Eastern and Western hospitals. In these letters Dr. Stribling of Western Lunatic Asylum and Dr. Galt of Eastern Lunatic Asylum discuss problems between the institutions, most notably the dispute over the geographical lines which guided admissions. The case of Alfred Mather became the turning point in this dispute. The subject correspondence also contains a folder devoted to an 1844 incident involving the inhumane treatmeant and illegal transport of a patient named William Hudson from Nelson County to Western State Hospital, as well as one folder of letters written by V.M. Randolph detailing his supposed mistreatment while a patient at the hospital.

      • Surveys, 1874.

        The survey material contains questionnaires received in response to a circular sent by Dr. Francis T. Stribling asking all Virginia doctors to take a census of the insane patients in their jurisdictions. The doctor's purpose was to complete a roster of all insane persons in Virginia not currently being treated at an asylum. The purpose for this project is unclear, but it appears that Dr. Stribling may have been trying to gather information for a report that would highlight the need for larger and more numerous mental health institutions in Virginia. Many of these files also contain lists of physicians practicing in each locality. It appears that Dr. Stribling may have died prior to the completion of this project.

          List of Doctors by County, undated (circa pre-1874).
    • Superintendent's Correspondence Files: Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette, 1907-1944.

      Restricted: Correspondence containing patient names and information that is less than 125 years old. These records may require review by an archivist and/or redaction (if it is possible) before they are served. Contains two groups of correspondence belonging to hospital superintendent Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette which were maintained separately from the other correspondence files, and separately from each other. The first group contains only outgoing letters dating from 1907 and 1909, while the other set contains both incoming and outgoing letters written between 1910 and 1944. Reseachers should note that a small amount of additional work-related DeJarnette correspondence can be found in the later years of the previous section of Superintendent's Correspondence. Dr. DeJarnette's personal correspondence and other effects can be found in Series I., Subseries E. DeJarnette Personal Files.

      • DeJarnette Outgoing Letters, 1907-1909.

        Contains correspondence dating from the years shortly after Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette's 1906 appointment as Superintendent of Western State Hospital. These letters are mostly small, brittle scraps of paper which are very difficult to read due to faded ink. Preservation photocopies were made, but in many instances, the letters are still unreadable. The letters are addressed to patients' families and various suppliers. Due to their small size, the letters are not highly detailed. Thus, the photocopied pages feature several letters on each page, in no particular order.

        Arranged by year, then alphabetically by first letter of the correspondent's last name. Letters are not alphabetically arranged within the individual folders.

      • DeJarnette Incoming and Outgoing Letters, 1910-1944.

        Contains both incoming and outgoing letters written to and from Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette, superintendent of Western State Hospital and later, DeJarnette State Sanatorium. The incoming letters are mostly inquiries from family and friends of patients. The outgoing letters were sometimes typed on the backs of the incoming letters. This correspondence is much more detailed and in much better physical condition than the earlier material. Each paper folder within a larger folder contains letters pertaining to a particular patient. Some of the patients featured in these letters may have resided at DeJarnette Sanatorium as well as Western State Hospital, since Dr. DeJarnette was superintendent of both simultaneously from 1932-1943, and head of the sanatorium from 1943-1947.

        Arranged alphabetically according to last name with folders for individual correspondents and/or patients. Comprehensive files exist only for letters D through H. Correspondence for the remaining letters of the alphabet is sparse or non-existant.

  • Series I., Subseries E. DeJarnette Personal Files, 1906-1965.

    Contains account books, correspondence, personal files, and scrapbooks belonging to longtime hospital superintendent, Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette and his wife Dr. Chertsey Hopkins DeJarnette. Dr. DeJarnette began as a physician at the hospital in 1889 and became superintendent in 1905. He was responsible for the planning and implementation of what would be called the DeJarnette State Sanatorium, constructed in 1932 to house patients who could afford to pay for their treatment. Dr. DeJarnette held the superintendency of both institutions until 1943 when he resigned as superindent of Western State. He remained the superintendent of the Sanatorium until 1947. Dr. DeJarnette was also an important figure in the eugenics and sterilization movements in Virginia. Additionally, Dr. Chertsey Hopkins DeJarnette is thought to have been one of the first licensed female psychiatrists in Virginia, having served as a physician at Western State from 1894-1906.

    The account books are not clearly identified, but they seem to be personal in nature. Most of the volumes contain records of stocks and dividends, as well as the estate of Mrs. DeJarnette's sister, Nannette Hopkins. The correspondence files contain letters to and from Dr. DeJarnette in relation to personal matters to include topics such as the hospital, poetry, and state government issues. Much of the later correspondence deals with Dr. DeJarnette's transition as head of DeJarnette Sanatorium, and problems encountered by a would-be reformer by the name of Reverend W. Carroll Brooke. Several folders of correspondence belonging to Dr. DeJarnette's wife Chertsey are also included, as well as material pertaining to her younger sister Orra Hopkins. The personal files contain mostly insurance documents and financial records. The folders labeled "Scrapbook" contain material found in three scrapbooks presumably put together by recent Western State Hospital staff. It is not known whether the material was originally in scrapbook form, or if the placement in binders was done arbitrarily at a later date. The first scrapbook contains letters of congratulation upon Dr. DeJarnette's fiftieth anniversary with Western State Hospital in 1939. Also included are invitations, telegrams and newspaper clippings. The second book contains miscellaneous ephemera such as birthday, Christmas, and anniversary greeting cards, letters, and poetry. The third contains mostly poetry, some written by Dr. DeJarnette himself, others from newspaper clippings, and some that was sent to him by mail. The scrapbook material was removed from the binders for preservation purposes.

    It is unclear why this personal material was maintained and included as part of the Western State Hospital collection. However, much of the material relates directly to the hospital and Dr. DeJarnette's tenure as superintendent. It also provides a personal glimpse into a revered and controversial figure in Western State's history. Additional work-related DeJarnette correspondence can be found in the previous correspondence sections within this series. These personal files are part of accessions 41404 and 45553.

    The ledgers and files are arranged alphabetically.

    Contains subject and miscellanous files found throughout the Western State Hosptial collection. The files consist of a variety of material including limited correspondence, memos, working papers, and other related documents pertaining to a particular subject or person. The files were most likely maintained by the hospital superintendent or his office staff, but in some cases the origin is unknown. Many files contain only one document, while other subjects fill several folders. The title of "General Files" was given in order to encompass all of the subject files, as well as lone and/or miscellaenous documents found in the collection. These files are part of accessions 31030, 31353, 31704, and 41404.

    The files are separated by the century in which they were created, and then alphabetically within.

    • 19th Century Files, 1828-1893.

Researchers should note that additional 19th century files (1828-1873) can be found in Series VI. Records Found at Eastern State Hospital (Accesion 44812).

  • Series I., Subseries I. Meeting Minutes (Hospital Committees), 1944-1991.

    Restricted: Meeting minutes containing patient names and information that are less than 125 years old. Some records may require review by an archivist and/or redaction (if it is possible) before they are served. Contains meeting minutes from various Western State Hospital committees. The minutes contain information about administrative and medical activities at the hospital. Some minutes are highly detailed, while others contain just an outline of subjects discussed. Most of the minutes were originally part of the Director's Correspondence and Reference Files accession, but were arranged separately for ease of research. In other cases, minutes were found scattered throughout the collection and moved to this subseries for the same reason. The bulk of the minutes date from the 1960s and 1970s. Meeting minutes from a variety of hospital committees can also be found in Series II. Departmental and Program Records, Subseries C. Shenandoah Geriatric Treatment Center Files. Researchers should check each section of this subseries for the minutes of specific committees. The meeting minutes are part of accessions 31353, 31704, and 41404.

    Arranged alphabetically by name of the committee, then chronologically within.

    • Administrative Staff Meeting Minutes, 1964-1977.
