Glenside Hospital – Then and Now    

Presented by David Buob

Glenside Hospital began as the Parkside Lunatic Asylum in 1870. Its history from that establishment through to its peak of the late 1950s when it housed almost 2000 inmates will be outlined. The address will also look at its current configuration, the proposed residential precinct to be built by Cedar Woods, the building of the new Repatriation facility and what these changes mean in terms of the existing buildings.

David worked at Glenside Hospital from 1973-94 before being transferred to Community work in the South. Retiring briefly in 2012 he has continued with casual / contract work since December 2012 and at Glenside again since December 2015. David has had an interest in the history of mental health in South Australia extending over several decades.
