“Norman Mailer Sent to Bellevue.” Article by Frank Kelly. New York Herald Tribune, 23 November, 1, 9. Long report on Mailer being sent by a magistrate to a psychiatric ward, and his earlier appearance that day on a WNTA-TV program, where he was interviewed by Mike Wallace about his intention to run for mayor. A partial list of those attending the party on 20 November at the Mailers’ apartment at 250 West 94th Street is given, as well as a longer version of his court statement. Protesting being sent to Bellevue, he said, “If this happens, for the rest of my life my work will be considered as the work of a man with a disordered mind.” Mailer was released after 17 days.
