Back in 1944 Altschuler called neuroses "the scourge of World War II" and the same could be argued about PTSD in the modern age of warfare. Of course, the good doctor had the sense to suggest that both musicians and mental health practitioners would build the "prescription after the manner of a pharmacist" to tend to each individual's specific needs. That would cost money and more time than the government bureaucrat is willing to spend on sacrificial lambs. Which only offers further proof that common sense, reason and morality are currently running retrograde a few hundred years behind technology.

This is a short piece featuring one of Eloise's most famous cases, Horace Flinders. He was a musical prodigy of sorts who was mentored (in some capacity) by Ossip Gabrilowitsch (he was married to Mark Twain's daughter). After Gabrilowitsch's death Flinders went mad, reverted to an infantile state and was sent to Eloise. Under the therapeutic tutelage of Ira Altshuler he regained some of his functionality, mainly in musical endeavors, but never was cured of his ailment.
Appearing with Flinders are music therapist Jane Matney and Dr. Thomas K. Gruber, superintendent of Eloise.
