    Excerpt from A Report of the Wisconsin Mental Deficiency Survey, 1921: With Recommendations

    With two state institutions for the feeble-minded - one being prae tically complete when one or two new buildings are added, the other now just in the process of construction - it is but in keeping with the Wiscon sin spirit that further progress in the direction of meeting and solving the problem presented by this important class of state wards should be made, in the light of more complete knowledge of their actual needs.

    The public officials of this state, desiring such information as would enable them to map out a comprehensive state-wide program for hand ling every phase of mental deficiency, decided to undertake, during the year 1920, a state-wide investigation of feeble-mindedness; a survey that would be unprejudiced, sound, scientific, thorough-going, and practical; that would enable the state authorities to know how well they were meeting and solving the menace and burden of feeble-mindedness, and what were the next steps to be taken in order to make' their program complete. It was deemed wise to call upon some national organization that had had experience in conducting similar surveys in other states. The National Committee for Mental Hygiene was chosen.

    The survey has covered a period of twelve months and has extended into the state' institutions, county institutions, and public schools, to gether with a special study of the city of Milwaukee. A report of the Milwaukee survey will be made separately.

    Defective families have been found throughout the state which, con tributing from generation to generation defective strains, have proven a financial burden and serious menace to the commonwealth.

    Delinquency has been found to be intimately related to mental dis ease and mental defect.
