Donations to support the Milton and Elizabeth Erickson Museum are appreciated as well.

Shortly after graduating from high school, Milton Erickson developed polio and hovered near death. Three years later, in June 1922 he undertook from his home in Wisconsin a canoe trip down the Mississippi River the purpose of which was to improve his strength and health. The canoe trip ended on August 1922, and Erickson accomplished his mission.

Milton H Erickson Foundation now makes the entire canoe diary available in its original form. From this document students are able to study one of the formative experiences in Erickson’s life.
