Dr. Winslow's Obituary

Post by Karen on Wed 11 Apr 2012 - 9:46

Lunacy Expert of International Repute Dies in London.

Special Cable Despatch to THE SUN.

LONDON, June 8. - Dr. L. Forbes Winslow, a lunacy expert of international repute and founder of the British Hospital for Mental Diseases, died suddenly today, in his seventieth year.

Dr. Winslow was accepted as an authority by the insanity experts of this country. He was known personally by many who had visited him in London or became acquainted with him during his visits to America. He had been retained as an expert in several cases in the United States, among the most notable of which was that of William Henry Theodore Durrant, a San Francisco assistant Sunday school superintendent, convicted on November 2, 1895, and hanged on January 8, 1898, for the murder of Blanche Lamont, and that of Mrs. Mary Alice Almont Livingston Fleming, who was acquitted in this city on June 24, 1896, of poisoning her mother, Mrs. Evelina M. Bliss.
Dr. Winslow was born in London on January 31, 1844. He was a lineal descendant of Edward Winslow, one of the leaders of the Pilgrim Fathers who came over in the Mayflower in 1620 and later became the first Governor of New Plymouth. Dr. Winslow was educated at Rugby and at Downing College, Cambridge.
He was retained in many important murder, lunacy and civil cases in England and made an exhaustive inquiry into the noted Jack the Ripper murders in the Whitechapel district. He had charge of the medical petition in the case of Mrs. Florence Maybrick, the American woman who was pardoned in 1904 after serving fifteen years following a conviction on circumstantial evidence of poisoning her husband, James Maybrick, in 1889. Dr. Winslow presented the petition in person.
Dr. Winslow was physician to the West End Hospital, London, and the North London Hospital for Consumption.
Among his publications are "Manual of Lunacy," "Mad Humanity," "Eccentricity of Youth Leading to Crime," "The Suggestive Power of Hypnotism," and "The Insanity of Passion and Crime." His "Lunacy Law in England," codified, was published in French. He contributed innumerable articles to medical journals in America and England.
