Search for Dementia Praecox lead to Death Certificates of Finns in Skagit County,
Washington, 1908-1947

ROOT, MATT -- Age 57, born in Finland. Died Aug. 4, 1923, Northern State
Hospital, Sedro-Woolley, Wash. Cause of death: cardio-renal disease; dementia
praecox. Had been in Fort Steilacoom; in Northern State Hospital since 1909.
Single. Laborer. Cremated.

I wonder if the grandest Dementia Praecox (nowadays schizophrenia) delusion
would be as strange as the thought that 80 years after your death
the entire world would be able to read your obituary, helpfully pointed to by
information robots.
