Description

Headline of Boston Globe article reporting on the suicide of former Bloomingdale attending physician David Tilden Brown on September 6, 1889.  While the article goes on to treat the event, in rather maudlin and sensational terms, as a tragedy, its smirking tone provides a whiff of the mob atmosphere of the attacks on the asylum that had led to Brown's resignation in 1877.
