1 KAY, JANET RAMSAY One Against Tomorrow. An Informal Biography of Dorothea Lynde Dix
N.p n.p 1948 
First Edition. Paperbound. A 250 page (with bibliography) typed unpublished manuscript of a biography of Dorothea Lynde Dix (1802 - 1887), a largely unsung American heroine of humanitarian and social reform in the field of the treatment of the mentally ill. Very good plus, bradbound in stiff wrappers. Dorothea Lynde Dix was a major and revolutionary force in bringing about reform to the manner in which the mentally ill were treated and regarded - both in the United States and in Europe. At that time in history, the popular belief was that the insane could never be cured and that their living conditions were of no consequence. Ms. Dix humbly dedicated her life to changing those views and practices for the better, without seeking or accepting any personal fame or recognition for her efforts.
