Dr. Kindwall was a noted physician and psychiatrist. He was instrumental in bringing the drug Disulfuram (Antabuse) into active use in the United States. Disulfuram is used in the treatment of chronic alcoholism and causes acute sensitivity to alcohol. After Dr. Kindwall left the sanitarium, he went to work for the Veterans Hospital.
