Subdivision 41 /Ley
41.03 (Ley psych report, 26 Oct.'45) MLU
29 July 1917; 25 October 1945
This document is a report of a mental examination of Robert Ley. The enumerated summary emphasizes Ley's emotional instability, which it attributes to a head injury, sustained in 1917, and consequent frontal lobe damage. Point 4 states, "Examination on 25 October 1945 revealed also the unusual emotional instability. Ley has been depressed since the Indictment but... has... presented no evidence of suicidal intention. He has always been one of the most potentially suicidal prisoners due to his extreme instability secondary to his old head injury." This document is a typewritten original of excellent quality on browning paper.
