Blog about Marilyn Monroe


1961


Columbia Presbyterian Hospital

March 5, 1961 (New York)
(Leave your comments, please)

        On February 7, Marilyn voluntarily checks herself into Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic on advice from Dr. Marianne Kris. The next day Marilyn is treated as severely disturbed. The hospital granted her one phone call, and Marilyn tried, unsuccessfully, to reach a friend. Finally, she got through to her first husband, Joe DiMaggio. She hadn't spoken to him for almost six years. On February 9, Marilyn contacts Joe, and the next day, she is transferred to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital (where, as was revealed in a letter she wrote during her stay, she read a volume of Sigmund Freud's letters to pass the time) in New York. This after Joe burst through the door of the facility demanding to see his wife.

      
The very night Marilyn called, DiMaggio flew to New York from his home in Florida and demanded that she be released from the clinic. She was released four days later, and then spent nearly a month in rehabilitation at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital
