It floundered for decades under the weight of its own expectations. The professor and the mad men was a precocious talent, a true scholar who was, for the most part, self-educated.
Knowing something for the sake of knowing it has become such an outdated concept as to be considered odd behavior. James Murray in the scriptorium built to house all the slips of paper coming in from his readers to compile the OED.
Murray knew that this project was too large for the academic community to shoulder alone. He placed advertisements asking for help from the whole country. He needed readers who would notate words and the sentence they were used in. The system Murray developed to handle this influx of information is ingenious, and like most clever systems simple by design.
One of the people who answered his call for help was an American surgeon named Doctor William Chester Minor. He became one of the largest, most consistent contributors to the OED.
I could almost believe that Minor is sipping tea and eating cucumber sandwiches while seated at a garden table at Windsor waiting for the Queen to have a chance to see him.
Unfortunately, it is just a pretty way of saying he is the professor and the mad men in an asylum the professor and the mad men the criminally insane. As you learn the details of his life he was most assuredly dangerously insane with roots for this insanity going back to the time he served in the Union army during the Civil War.

His family was delicate mentally. They were bright and brilliant but like many hyper intelligent people wound too tight. They felt things too intently. Two of his brothers committed suicide.
The Professor and the Madman
Minor was beset by twisted, shattered dreams involving Irish people trying to kill. He was a self-reproaching masturbator who also has vivid nightmares which fueled his already prodigious self-abuse.
This all culminated in one final act which made it readily apparent that his incarceration was the only option left for society.
It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship between the Madman and the Professor, without the added distractions of Ingrid Bergman or Paul Henreid. Though Minor was held in Broadmoor the professor and the mad men the criminally insane, he had money and, therefore, could enjoy more luxury than the normal inmate.
In the professor and the mad men, he rented a second cell, and that became his sitting room and library. He paid another inmate to build him beautiful, teak bookshelves.
It is soon established that the man is what we would call today, I think, a paranoid schizophrenic, plagued by fantasies of evil-doers emerging through the floorboards while he slept, torturing him and subjecting him to vile sexual abuse.
This is the madman, Dr. William Chester Minor, who will now spend the better part of his life imprisoned at Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum.
