ABSTRACT
Arthur Mitchell, sometime Commissioner in Lunacy for Scotland, outlined some of the principles of epidemiological studies in the 1860s. He was responsible for a system of care in the community for the insane that was, at the time, influential. In the course of his work he carried out studies that reflected concern with several of the methodological issues raised by contemporary epidemiological investigation.
