Brooklyn State Hospital records #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>

Dear Genners:
Are medical records available for Brooklyn State Hospital for
1946-47? I am searching for records concerning the death of a
relative who died January 1947 after 10 days of hospitalization. (I
already have the death certificate.) What I am looking for is more
information about the illnesses which might have led to her death.
(i.e. her medical history/chart, etc) The diagnoses include mental
illness and we are trying to ascertain the duration of those symptoms.
Her son is willing to authorize a request but we want to know if such
information is available and , if so, where to write.
(For reasons of privacy, I will not disclose her name since there are
living relatives)
