Archives Donation to University of Illinois at Chicago Dr. Abraham Low Special Collection
In 1937 Dr. Abraham A. Low, a neuropsychiatrist with the Psychiatric Institute at the University of Illinois, worked with his patients to form the organization now known as Recovery International (RI) to help patients re-integrate into the community following hospitalization. He developed techniques of self-help to augment outpatient treatments by professionals. Among the records are nearly complete sets of newsletters and other publications (books, pamphlets, brochures, etc.), transcriptions of taped interviews with Abraham Low done not long before his death, unpublished manuscripts, correspondence of Low, his wife Mae Low and other key leaders, and more.
