Biography/History

Olof Kinberg (1873-1960) was a doctor and the first professor of forensic psychiatry in Sweden. Kinberg taught at Långholmen's Central Prison, Stockhom, Sweden where he was also head of the forensic psychiatry clinic. His ideas regarding criminology impacted Swedish legislation. Kinberg wrote Basic Problems of Criminology.

Scope and Contents

This collection contains 189 typescript case studies of criminal patients at Långholmen Prison (Långholmens fångvårdsanstalt) in Stockholm, Sweden spanning the years from 1931 to 1938. Each dossier includes individual's photographs of frontal and profile views, birthdate, diagnosis, and complete life history. The files include men and women ranging in age from sixteen to seventy-four. Crimes of patients include forgery, embezzlement, robbery, arson, prostitution, and murder, among others. There are also individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, psychosis, and depression. Each file is in Swedish and has handwritten notes in English providing a summary of the the patient's criminal activity and psychological state. The English notes appear to be written by American sociologist William Isaac Thomas (1863-1947), a friend of Thorsten Sellin (1896-1994) who had possession of the dossiers. Sellin was a sociologist, internationally-recognized criminology expert, and professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania.
