1922

Demuth became a patient of Dr. Frederick Allen at The Physiatric Institute in Morristown, New Jersey. After a period of in-patient treatment of his diabetes, Demuth followed a lengthy regimen of near-starvation in Lancaster. Demuth stayed at the Institute again in 1923, and subsequently began to take insulin injections, becoming one of the first people in the United States to receive this new treatment.
