From the Minneapolis Tribune:


MILWAUKEE, June 16. – [Special.] – Ernest Vliet, general passenger agent of the Milwaukee, Lake Shore & Western road, one of the best known passenger agents in the Northwest, became violently insane today. It took the efforts of strong men to convey him to the private asylum at Wauwatosa. His aberration of mind was brought on by overwork.
Ernest Vliet was most likely treated at the Milwaukee Sanitarium in Wauwatosa, shown here in an ad from about 1929.
