Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with Edward Colman, M.D.
Dr. Colman had experience working in a state mental hospital (Fergus Falls) and mental health center (Lakeland MHC) both in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. He begins his story with a long description of his genealogy and prominent family. He was a product of Harvard Medical School, but after his military duty, he was trained at the Minneapolis VA hospital psychiatric residency program. The majority of Dr. Colman's career was in Fergus Falls, and he gives a thorough description of psychiatric practice in the state hospital and of the multifaceted psychiatrist roles in a community mental health center. He was a believer in the biological model of psychosis, which he also describes.
