Interviewee: Brown, Bertram S.
Title: Bertram S. Brown, July 30, 1975
Scope Note: The collection contains interviews with 42 former directors and other individuals significant to the foundation and early history of the National Institute of Mental Health. Dr. Eli A. Rubenstein conducted the interviews between the years 1975-1978, with the hope of publishing a book about the institute. Unfortunately he was never able to write the book. Consequently, in 1989 he gave his interview collection to the NIMH when a formal oral history program was proposed by James Pittman. This program never came to life when funding did not become available. Each interview contains a transcript and sound cassette, separately filed. Many of the transcripts also contain the individual's curriculum vitae and some also contain associated material, such as articles or conference papers, the interviewee felt pertinent to the subjects discussed during the interview.
