dc.description.abstract This thesis does several things. It presents a brief history of epilepsy as a foundation to the story of the early development of the New Castle facility. The location of the village caused considerable competition among the counties desiring the institution; space is devoted to that competition. Attention is also given to the selection of the first superintendent Dr. Walter C. Van Nuys. The major method of treatment of epileptics in the early twentieth century was custodial. This study emphasizes the physical development of the New Castle institution in its early years to show the type of custodial care the patients received.
