We moved mom to assisted living, going through her house now. My mom was @ McCleary Clinic in 1956. She rec’d a parchment certificate for her proceedure. We have also the get well cards sent to her while there. We have found a pristine plate depicting Dr. mcCleary, the clinic, the manor, Wapoo keeper of the springs, and a flag by Fred Tripp. Would you want a picture of this plate?

OOPS, I meant "my grandmother was there from at least March 1930 until June 11-ish, 1930"

Apparently, my grandmother spent time at the McCleary Sanitarium from June 1930 until at least June 11-ish, 1930. We had thought it was a "Funny Farm". Now we know we cannot blame all the crazies in our family on our grandmother. ON the other hand........Aloha, Janis Bush

My mother worked at the McCleary in the 1930's I believe. We were going through some of her old photos this past weekend, and came across some staff group photos.I just googled it, and found this. fi found it interesting, because we had heard of the sanitarium, but didn't know what kind of medicine they performed.
