J. T. Arlidge (1822–1899): a disillusioned alienist?

  • Edward Myers (a1)
Abstract

John Thomas Arlidge was a prominent alienist in the mid 19th century. After thirteen years involvement with asylum psychiatry in London he changed direction to become a physician in North Staffordshire, achieving fame as an expert in occupational disorders. This paper describes his contributions to the psychiatric literature and suggests that disaffection with the way psychiatry was progressing may have led to his change of career.
