The Washington Letter dated March 11, 1946, in the J.A.M.A. contains an item with the heading: LACK OF PSYCHIATRISTS CALLED 'FRIGHTENING'. 'Captain Francis Braceland, head of the Navy's neuropsychiatric division, informed the Senate subcommittee considering the Pepper bill, which would set up and finance a National Neuropsychiatric Institute in Washington, that "a considerable block of America's civil population does not enjoy mental health".
