Howell Sanatorium Records

June 24, 2013

Patient index cards from 1927-1961 are in RG 80-133 and in a database (Howell.mdb) found here: U:\MHC_Public\Archives\Databases\Mental Health.

Records themselves (1907-1961) are in RG 91-466 and arranged by case number.

Researchers must be able to provide a death record to access the records.


Southgate Regional Center for Developmental Disabilities

October 25, 2009

We just found out from the DCH RMO that the Southgate Regional Center for Developmental Disabilities that closed in 2001 placed all of their kardex cards inside the patient files.  As a result, the kardex will be destroyed when the patient record is destroyed and will not be transferred to the Archives.

We don’t know if DCH will fix this problem since they have a need to use the kardex.  I thought you might want to retain this note for the reference staff in case they get inquiries in the future.
