American psychiatrist who founded the Menninger Foundation and the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas.
He started the Menninger Clinic with his son and hired his closest friends and brother to work there as well.
He caused controversy when, in his first book, The Human Mind, he argued that the mentally ill were only slightly different than healthy individuals.
His brother William played a leading role in the US Army's psychiatric work.
His ideas have been said to take after those of Sigmund Freud.
