Stephen Rachlin, M.D. With this issue, we launch the seventieth volume of Psychiatric Quarterly, the last to be published with a cover date in the 1990s. Volume 1, Number 1 appeared in January 1927, and was pub- lished by the (New York) State Hospitals Press. An annual sub- scription cost $2.00. Actually, our journal succeeded the State Hospital Quarterly. With a reorganization of state departments, the then new De- partment of Mental Hygiene enlarged the scope of its official pub- lication to "deal with the whole range of mental disease, mental defect, epilepsy and allied disorders; also with the problems of hospital administration, nursing, occupational therapy, mental clinics, social service, prophylaxis and other mental hygiene ac- tivities." The State Hospital Quarterly (which began in 1915) was to be a "service journal" containing the minutes of the conferences of the State Hospital Commission with managers and superinten- dents of state hospitals, statistical data, news and an- nouncements. A separate publication, the Psychiatric Bulletin, was to be a scientific journal dedicated to the advancement of psychiatry and the psychiatric work of the state hospitals. Obvi- ously, the latter is much more in tune with what Psychiatric Quarterly has been since 1927.
