Dear Mr. Greene,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located two series titled Register of Female Patients, 1866-1933; and Case Files of Patients, 1855-1950 in the Records of St. Elizabeths Hospital (Record Group 418) that may contain the information about your great grandmother. Some records are digitized but not all in the Catalog. For access to and/or copies of these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also may wish to review NARA’s Records of St. Elizabeths Hospital website for background information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Dear Ms. Penn,
I recently traveled to the National Archives in DC to review and copy documents pertaining to my great-great grandmother. Unfortunately, the Case Files of Patients for the year that my grandmother was admitted (1921) were disposed of by the hospital. However, I was able to copy the page that referenced my grandmother from the Register of Female Patients.
Your help at pointing me in the right direction in finding direct evidence of my grandmother's status is greatly appreciated. I thank you very much for your support and research abilities.
