Biographical history

Dundee District Board of Lunacy was created out of the larger County District Lunacy Board in 1899. In its new form it purchased Westgreen Asylum from Dundee Royal Asylum for Lunatics in 1903 for £90,000. Westgreen Asylum was then developed to provide care for pauper patients in the Dundee area. From May 1914 the name of the board changed to the Dundee District Board of Control.
