I visited the Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC) in September 2012 in order to research the founding and institutional development of the Beiping1 Psychopathic Hospital. The Hospital, which was managed and funded by the Peking Union Medical College (PUMC) in conjunction with the Beiping municipal authorities, was established in 1933 and continued to be jointly run by the PUMC until 1939. The research that I conducted at the Archive Center will be incorporated into my doctoral dissertation, "Spit, Chains, and Hospital Beds: A History of Insanity in Republican Beijing, 1912-1937," which documents institutional and phenomenological perspectives on what it meant to be "mad" in early twentieth century China.
