Dec. 4, 1941:Dr. Richard A. Carter, head of the Carter Neurological Clinic in Garden Grove, is accused of negligence in administering a fatal dose during insulin shock treatments for Virginia Lamb, 22, of Anaheim for dementia praecox. It’s unclear from The Times stories exactly what was wrong with Lamb, who left a husband and 2-year-old son, Edward. Carter told Lamb’s husband, Alvin, that she had a “mild form of insanity.”  Unfortunately, I can’t find the outcome of the trial in the clips.

Jimmie Fidler says: Looks like another long idle spell for William Powell: the old illness.
