THE

NINETY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT

FOR THE YEAR 1908.

The Committee appointed by the Trustees to pre- pare the Annual Report to the Corporation respect- fully submit the following:

LAND.

The real estate of the McLean Hospital has been increased during 1908 by the purchase of two tracts of land at Waverley, one on Mill Street, containing about 71,800 square feet, and the other, the Brown Farm, so called, comprising hft3'-six and forty-eight one hundredths (56.48) acres, which had been oc- cupied by the Hospital for several years under a lease. Since its purchase a spring has been discov- ered upon the Farm which has a large flow of water, sufficient, it is believed, for more than the present needs of the Hospital. A pipe line has been laid connecting with the old line, and a pump-house is in process of construction, in which a pump will be installed.

Three (3) lots of land on Fruit Street in Boston, with the houses thereon, adjoining the grounds of the General Hospital, have been bought during the year. This purchase completed the ownership by the Corporation of the land bounded by Blossom

Report of the Trustees.

Street, Fruit Street, the old yard of the Hospital, and the Parkman land and buildings on Fruit Street Place. All the old houses upon this property, thirty- three (s^) in number, have been torn down, the land graded and made a part of the Hospital yard, around which a brick wall with a gate at the foot of North Anderson Street has been built. The accompanying illustration shows this gate, and the new land.

Ten thousand (10,000) square feet of land on Hammatt Road, West Roxbury, lying between two pieces of land belonging to the Hospital, were acquired by purchase.

BUILDINGS.

A bay window has been added to the Wyman House at Waverley and a partition removed, which will admit more sun and air, and a room for continu- ous baths for patients is now building.

At the Convalescent Home the two rooms which were formerly used as a laundry have been thrown into one, making a very pleasant small ward and in- creasing the number of beds from thirty-two (32) to thirty-six (36). The extra space gained has been used to obviate the crowded condition of the beds for men in the old wards.

A veranda has been added to the Weld Ward at the General Hospital through the generosity of Dr. Charles G. Weld.

FINANCIAL. During the year the system of accounting at the Hospital has been changed to a uniform system, adopted by several of the most prominent hospitals of the country. The adoption of this system makes it difficult to make detailed comparisons of the

7

Keport of the Trustees.

financial results in the workings of this Institution in 1908 with former years, but it can be said in general terms that the General Hospital has done a larger business, at about $9,000 less expense than in 1907.

The McLean Hospital, on a basis of 1907 account- ing, will show for 1908 that the receipts, including the income from the Special Funds, exceeded the expenditures by about $3,000, and the Convalescent Home will show a deficit of about $1,000.

The income from invested funds, as shown in the Treasurer's Report, is considerably less than in 1907, but this difference is not the result of a less earning power of the investments, but has come about through the receipt in 1907 of certain unusual settle- ments happening in that year, and also to a difl^'erence in the system of bookkeeping, which closed the books on December 31, and did not include certain January first dividends in 1908, which happened to come in in 1907 and appeared in the accounts of that year.

In connection with the new system of accounting, which deals with cash transactions only, it was con- sidered advisable to charge off the various stocks and uncollected charges for board at the McLean Hospital, which has occasioned a nominal shrinkage of the General Fund to that extent.

Under this new system it is expected that here- after comparisons and an intelligent understanding of the workings of the Institution will be clearer and more valuable than ever.

Report of the Trustees.

STATISTICAL.

AT THE GENERAL HOSPITAL IN BOSTON.

The total number of patients admitted during the year was 5,362 against 5,517 in 1907. The daily average was 291 against 279 in 1907. The total number treated during the year was 5,637. The actual work done by the Hospital, however, is shown by the total patients' da3's treatment, 106,034 in 1908, as opposed to 102,109 in 1907.

The number of free patients treated during the year was 3,558 as against 3,285 in 1907, and the number of paying patients in whole or in part was 2,079 ^s opposed to 2,364 in 1907.

OFFICERS AND STAFF.

No changes have occurred in the Board of Trus- tees during the year.

The Corporation lost by death early in the year its President, Mr. Charles H. Dalton. At the request of the Trustees the following tribute to his memory was prepared by the Chairman:

" Charles H. Dalton was a member of the Board of Trustees of this Hospital during the years 1866 to 1881. He was President of the Corporation from 1888 until his death on Feb. 23, 1908. During this long connection with the administration of the Hos- pital he gave it the same vigorous, intelligent, and devoted service which marked his life in the many important public and private employments to which his time was so freely given.

" As Chairman of the Building Committee of the new Hospital at Waverley, he was untiring in his labors, and the highly satisfac- tory result of this, the greatest undertaking of the Hospital, is largely due to his courage and foresight.

" Two distinguished members of his family have served the Hospital in its medical administration, and in their memory our late associate together with his brother, Mr. Henry R. Dalton,

* The statistics of McLean Hospital are made out for the year ending Sept. 30, 1908, in order tliat tliey may be compared with the tables of other Insane Hospitals in the State.

Report of the Trustees.

established ' The Dalton Scholarship,' a lasting memorial of the conspicuous, devoted, and wise contribution of this family to the cause of medicine and humanity.

" The Trustees of the Massachusetts General Hospital in affectionate remembrance of their late associate have entered this tribute upon their records."

In less than two months after the loss of its Presi- dent, Mr. Franklin Haven, Treasurer of the Corpora- tion, was suddenly removed by death. At the next meeting after his death the Board adopted the following minute:

" For nearly a quarter of a century, Franklin Haven, who died on April 7, 1908, served as Treasurer of the Massachusetts General Hospital.

" The trustees desire to place upon their records their grateful appreciation of his long, continuous, and valuable services, of his fidelity to the trust committed to his charge, of his unvarying courtesy of manner, and of his cheerful welcome to this room (the Directors' .Room of the Merchants National Bank) where at his invitation we have held our meetings for so many years.

" His kindly and constant presence at our meetings will be greatly missed, and his memory long be cherished."

On Oct. 16, 1908, Mr. Charles H. W. Foster, who had been acting, since Mr. Haven's death, as Treas- urer ^ro tempore^ resigned as Secretary and was elected Treasurer and Mr. John A. Blanchard was chosen Secretary.

The following changes have taken place in the Staff. The term of office of Dr. Reginald H. Fitz as Visit- ing Physician expired, and the Trustees expressed to him their " regret that the time for his retirement through age limit had arrived " and also entered upon their records their " high appreciation of his services as Microscopist and Curator of the Pathological Cabinet from 1871 to 1889, Pathologist from 1889 to

11

Jleport of the Trustees.

1892, and Visiting Physician from 1888 to 1908." Services such as these not only add to the high reputation of the Hospital, but increase the welfare of the whole community.

Dr. Elbridge G. Cutler, Dr. Henry L. Morse, and Dr. Joel E. Goldthwait resigned from the StalT, and the appreciation of their services by the Trustees was expressed by their votes and communicated to those. gentlemen.

Dr. Fitz and Dr. Cutler were appointed upon the Consulting Staft'. Dr. Elliott G. Brackett was ap- pointed Orthopedic Surgeon in the place of Dr. Goldthwait, and Drs. Eugene A. Crockett and Harris P. Mosher were appointed Aural Surgeons.

Dr. Frederic C. Shattuck was appointed Con- tinuous Service Physician at the General Hospital and Dr. Richard C. Cabot as his Assistant.

In the McLean Hospital Dr. Guy C. Fernald resigned.

ADMINISTRATION.

In the Administration Department Dr. Herbert B. Howard resigned to accept the position of Superin- tendent of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. The Board accepted his resignation with regret and re- quested the Secretary to express to him their appre- ciation of his able and faithful administration and of the tact, justice, and courtesy shown by him in the settlement of the intricate affairs of the Hospital.

Dr. Frederic A. Washburn was appointed Admin- istrator to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Dr. Howard, and Dr. Joseph B. Howland was appointed Assistant Administrator.

The Trustees express their gratitude to the Ladies' Visiting Committee and to many other ladies inter-

12

Report of the Trustees.

ested in the Hospital for the 103'al and efficient serv- ice rendered b}- them in contributing to the comfort and entertainment of the patients.

In their Report for the year 1886, the Trustees said: "The excess of the ordinary expenses over the income is substantially due to the number of free beds at the General Hospital. That this deficit should cease to exist without curtailings the number of our free beds and diminishing our charit}' we must make large additions to the subscribers to our free beds." This is equally true at the present time. And the Trustees would again ask for a more generous support to the fund and annual subscription for free beds, to the end that a restriction in their number need not become an imperative necessity, resulting in a reduction in the number of free patients.

The pressing needs of the General Hospital are an Administration Building, a new Nurses' Home, and suitable quarters for graduate nurses emplo3'ed by the Hospital. The Trustees would call attention to the Report of the Administrator and Resident Physician for the reasons given by him why these needs ought to be met now, and make an appeal to the friends of the Hospital for prompt and liberal contributions to enable them to make the needed improvements without delay.

The Medical Superintendent at the McLean Hos- pital has again brought to the notice of the Trustees the need of a new Nurses' Home at that Institution, a need too well known by the Trustees who have been prevented bv the want of funds alone from erecting a new building for that purpose. For these funds the Trustees make an earnest appeal to the benevolent and charitable.

In conclusion the Trustees invite attention to the
