Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with Burtrum Schiele, M.D.
After his professional training in Colorado, Dr. Schiele came to the University of Minnesota department of psychiatry in 1937, and remained a member of the staff until his retirement in the 1980s. In this interview, he reviews the history of teaching psychiatry in the medical school and to residents, and interesting dynamics among the faculty. Although trained in psychotherapy, he early on became interested in psychotropic medications, and became a renowned expert in clinical research in psychopharmacology. He reviews the changes that took place in psychiatric treatment over his career, and also talks at some length about governmental regulation of medical research. He also provides a history of the founding of the Minnesota Psychiatric Society.
