Asylum Identifier Wood Chopper Remarks Married., dies in Aug
Dr. J.C. Hawthorne's Oregon Hospital for the Insane, founded in 1861, occupied 75 acres between what are now Ninth and 12th avenues and Hawthorne Boulevard and Belmont Street.The grounds of the Greek revival building included a dairy, produce garden and wood lot.
Patients were expected to work the farm. Manual labor was a cornerstone of the progressive and compassionate routine Hawthorne gave patients — called moral treatment and based on practices developed by the Quakers, says Grace Heckenberg, a Portland mental health activist.
James was identified as one of the Wood Choppers there.
On October 23, 1883 Dr. Josephi and Mrs. Hawthorne (wife of the late Dr. Hawthorne) transferred control of the patients in their care to a board of trustees consisting of state officials. From October 22-24, 370 patients were transported from Portland to the new facilities in Salem by rail. The actual Hawthorne Hospital was closed before James was committed, he was taken to Salem.
