Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with William Brauer, M.D.
Dr. Brauer practiced for 35 years in Minneapolis, and ten more years in surrounding rural communities. He gives a fascinating, far-ranging interview, exploring his multifaceted treatment approaches. His theme is that his patients teach him - and this led him over the years to some very unusual experiences, with "white" witches, cults, and even demon possession. Dr. Brauer had arguably the largest psychiatric practice in Minnesota, as he was a self-described "workaholic." He organized this interview ahead of time, and spoke from notes, so the interviewer has some difficulty managing the interview. Nevertheless, the reader should glean a great deal of information about multiple psychiatric treatment approaches, some of them community "firsts," in the latter 20th century.
