110-Proposed Home for Mental Defectives-Hobart is a file containing correspondence of the Public Health Department about a proposal to build a home for children with intellectual disabilities. The Mental Defectives Home at St John's Park was no longer a suitable place for children as the site was now mostly for elderly people. The file also contains minimal information about Ashley Home for Boys, Lachlan Park, the Magdalen Home, and Wybra Hall.
