SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE NINETEEN This Changing World Cass County Historical Society PART 478 Two names of the quartet of Long Cliff officials that we printed a couple of weeks ago were transposed. The tallest man oE the group, at the extreme right, was Henry Barnhart, of Rochester; the man next to him was Warren McCray, who became governor oE the state a few years later.

AS' WE HAVE previously remarked, Dr. Rogers spent the rest of his life at Long Cliff, and it was a life well spent. It is most fitting that we quote from a memorial issued in his honor at the time of his 'death, April 11, 1908: "Dr. Joseph Goodwin Rogers, the son of Dr. Joseph H. D. Rogers held at the time of his death "IN THE SUBSTANTIAL architecture and durable and sanitary construction of Long Qliff Hospital the handiwork of Dr. Rogers will endure for years to come as a monument to this genius and his faithfulness to duty . . . many of! \he acts that put our benevolent institutions on- the high plane of efficiency they now occupy were placed in our statutes thrdngh his ONLY ONIY FASHION BEAUTY SHOP NOW FEATURING OUR NEW REDUCING SALON PERMANENTS with soft ringlets SHAMPOO INCLUDES OTHERS CUTTING TO $25 STYLING CREAM No Appointment Necessary NO FUZZ OR FRIZZ 9 'Til 6 ' 124 SIXTH STREET PHONE 20111 j whose roots go deep into Logans| port's past tells us that he moved into the Annabel house, which was in the 900 block of North, on the south, side of the street, s( doubtedly he was the man in charge at Long Gliff. THURMAN C. ANNABEL was an attorney in Logansport eighty years ago. He moved away a short of Madison, Indiana, was born No- Lane Rogers,!counsel-and advice. Being a gifted vember 23, 1841. . at the age 1 OC K7J time before Long Cliff was started, His address in the old directories of 18 began the study of .medicine with his father. In 1863 he attended a course of medical lectures at | the Cincinnati College of Medicine, ^"d on. March 3, 1864, graduated at Bellevue Medical College, New York City. Returning to Madison he served as surgeon in the military hospital located there until the close of the Civil War when he went to Europe, where he. spent two years in travel and in the was shown as 109 North. That was j pursuit of his studies in the clin- the old system o£ numbering,lies of Paris and other medical which appears not to have been! v centers. He then returned to Madi- much of a system, or method; just son and engaged in practice with a haphazard way of showing where; his father until 1879. On June 20, mechanical architect, as well as distinguished physician, the plans of the buildings, the arrangement of the appurtenances thereto, the beauty, of the grounds, and the system of management of the institutions are all largely creations of Dr. Roger's marvelous mind, and he was as- greatly concerned in every detail of Long Cliff as though it were his to have and to hold forever He knew most of the ej~} -9 'people lived. The present number i of that house is 923 North. By the time the next 'directory came out the -new hospital was in operation, thousand patients in the institution, and could tell their friends their condition at any time with scarcely a reference -to his records or his assistant physicians.' . . . his familiarity witn everything from the simplest condition on the 1872, he married Margaret Wat-i farm to the scientific'direction of son, of Bedford, Pennsylvania . . . | medical skill was an accomplish- he accepted the superintendency Iment.that men of all statons in life of the' State Hospital for Insane j looked upon with awe and admira- and Dr. Rogers, with his family, j at Indianapolis in 1879, which posi-j tion ... a profound student in literary and legal lore and in music he was sunburst of intellectuality ... his devotion to his home and his parental care for his family ..: the discharge of -every duty 'devolving upon him as a leader o£ righteous citizenship, made for him a name that is a credit to the high estate of a father and an honor to Indiana manhood." *AT THE FIRST Dr. Rogers had two assistants, Drs. Frank B. Wynn and Samuel E. Smith. The original number of beds, that is, the capacity of the hospital, was 366, equally divided between the sexes. Within two years that had increased to 410 beds, and Dr. Rogers was asking for more capacity in order to accommodate the large number on a waiting list. . Within four years the staff numbered four physicians; we have no statistics as to the number of patients until the time of Dr. Rogers' passing, when it was about one thousand. At present the staff numbers 15; there are just under 2400 patients, or were a few days ago when Dr. Southworth talked to the writer. There are 735 employees, including all grades, and the size of the farm has increased from the original 300 acres, approximately, to 1335 acres. DR. F. W. TERFLINGER, retired prominent local physician, joined the Long Cliff staff in 1902. A few years later he became Assistant Superintendent, and, on Dr. Rogers passing, was named to succeed him. After something like eleven years, in that capacity he retired td private practice in Logansport, which he followed about thirty years. Dr. Terflinger's successor was Earl Palmer, a native of Logansport's South Side, who had become a physician. He was a member of the medical staff at Long Cliff for about 13 years. When Dr. Dr. Terflinger took a leave of absence to enter military service Dr. Palmer took over. When Dr. Terflinger returned to duty at the Cliff Dr. Palmer entered private practice in Logansport, where he remained until his death. He established a private hospital in the Dykeman home at 1st and Broadway, where the Y.W.C.A. is now. FOLLOWING' DR. Terflinger's permanent resignation we believe Dr. Nelson-W. .Cady was the next incumbent. .Dr. Cady had been a local physician for many years. We believe he ended his career at Long Cliff. Then came Dr. Paul E. Bowers, who remained only a short time, going from here to take charge of a government hospital in California, Dr. Harry Elkins, senior staff assistant, was acting superintendent for a few months, until •the appointment of Dr. Samuel Dodds, who served until his death six years later. Dr. John B. Maxwell was acting superintendent for a year or more following Dr. Dodds' death. He was followed by Dr. 0. R. Lynch for about five years. Upon Dr. Lynch's resignation Dr. Clifford L. Williams served for several years. He went from Long Cliff to .the State Hospital at Richmond, we believe. He was succeeded by Dr. Charles C. Chapin, a member of the staff. Dr. Charles A. Zeller followed him for a short period. AFTER HIS DEPARTURE Richard W. Gobi, chief clerk, not a physician, was named acting superintendent, who filled the posi- tion very satisfactorily for about six months, until the appointment of Dr. John A. Larson, whom most of us remember. Dr. John A. Southworth, the present incumbent, was the next superintendent. His ttpm ends January 1, when he takes over a new position, that of Deputy Commissioner of the Division of Mental Health. Personally, this writer, while congratulating Dr. Southworth on his promotion, dislikes to see'him leave Logansport. LEAVES REFORMATORY PENDLETON, Ind. (ffl — Edwin H.
