Bibliotheca Osleriana 3408. With thanks to Wikipedia for the following information: John Gideon Millingen [1782-1862] was a British army surgeon and author. Born in Westminster of Irish and Dutch parents, Millingen was educated in Paris, where he achieved his medical degree. He became an assistant surgeon in the British Army in 1802, serving in the Peninsular War, and won a medal at Waterloo and the surrender of Paris. He retired in 1823 and was eventually appointed as a physician to the military asylum at Chatham and Hanwell. Hanwell Lunatic Asylum, as it was at one time called, was built for the pauper insane. Hanwell was the first purpose-built asylum in England and Wales, and it opened in 1831. Located about 8 miles or 13 km west of Central London, it was once the world's largest asylum. By 1840 it had been decided to abolish mechanical restraints at Hanwell. Staff were expected to treat patients with kindness and respect, and to aim for their eventual rehabilitation and release. Having said that, it was expensive to house paupers on a life-long basis and the recognition of insanity as an illness can almost be seen as a cost-saving measure rather than a humane one.
