JOSEPH Workman, hardware merchant, newspaper writer, medical teacher, and the most influential psychiatrist of his day in Canada was so highly regarded by his medical contemporaries that he was elected President of The Canadian Medical Association in 1877, first President of the Ontario Medical Association in 1881, and first President of the Toronto Medical Society (the forerunner of the Toronto Academy of Medicine) in 1878.

Workman remarked that even after the repeal of the witch laws in England in 1738, John Wesley was deploring in 1768 the loss of faith in witches, and in 1773 the divines of the presbytery of Scotland declared their belief in witchcraft. He concluded the paper with a very interesting point, viz. how important the early training of the individual is with regard to the mode and content of thought of the adult, including the delusions of the mentally ill indicating that the acceptance of an idea, for instance, of being "possessed", is one made possible by the type of early training.
