The term "psychopathy" was accepted in America. William A. White, a former superintendent of St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C., described it in his 1935 textbook Outline of Psychiatry, as did Philadelphia psychiatrist Edward Strecker, M.D., and Franklin Ebaugh, M.D., of the University of Colorado in their 1935 textbook. In 1941 Hervey Cleckley, M.D., a psychiatrist at the University of Georgia Medical School, published The Mask of Sanity in which he described such cases. He believed the condition was a true illness.
