Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with Phillip Edwardson, M.D.
Dr. Edwardson was born and raised in Minneapolis, and had an early interest in medicine and psychiatry. He had his psychiatric training at the University of Rochester (NY), then returned to Minnesota to practice child psychiatry. He practiced at the Wilder Child Guidance Clinic in St. Paul for his entire career, and as director from 1979 until his retirement in 2001. Dr. Edwardson provides a complete account of the practice of child psychiatry in this setting, with the changes he noted over the years. He observes becoming more comfortable prescribing medications for children in more recent years. Of interest is that his wife was Dean of the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota for many years.
