This chapter introduces the case files pertaining to Kenya Colony’s ‘white insane’ on which the book is based. It approaches the methodological challenges of utilising patient case files as historical sources and uses a number of individuated case studies to consider their value and the ways they might be read. The chapter also begins the identification of common themes and contemplates the correlation between the ‘white insane’ and the ‘poor white’.
