Answer

What book was written based on a patient’s experience at Chestnut Lodge, a sanitarium in Rockville?   ANSWER: B: I Never Promised You a Rose Garden In 1910, Dr. Ernest Luther Bullard opened the doors of Chestnut Lodge on Montgomery Avenue in Rockville in the former Woodlawn Hotel.  His son, Dexter Bullard, turned the facility into an internationally renowned institution for the treatment of schizophrenic patients. Hannah Green, a patient of the lodge’s noted physician Frieda Fromm-Reichmann, wrote of her stay in her eye-opening book. Bullard and his staff pioneered work in the area of psychoanalytically oriented treatment, rather than custodial care or drug therapy, for persons with major psychiatric illnesses.

About This Blog

Education Matters will discuss the news and issues affecting both public and private schools in Montgomery County. We want to talk about what’s happening inside—and outside—the classroom, who’s making the grade and who isn’t.

Julie Rasicot is a former newspaper reporter and managing editor who’s been writing about education for 25 years. She’s a veteran PTA and classroom volunteer who’s the mother of two girls—an eighth-grader and a fifth-grader—attending MCPS schools. None of that seems to matter, though, when she’s struggling to help her kids with their math homework.
