When women used to be depressed or were not "taking care of their men" properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments. This was part of conditioning them to always wear a smile. They believed that if a woman saw herself smiling that it would become natural practice and that she would be "cured". This often went along with shock therapies.

Grace McDaniels (1888 - August 1958), AKA the "Mule Faced Woman," was born in Numa, Iowa. She was called the Mule faced Woman because, obviously, her face resembled that of a mule's. The reasoning behind this ugly exterior is that she had had lip cancer which caused her lip to swell. After about thirty years, her lip was so swollen that she was able to join a freak show. She was married and had a child. She later retired and moved to Tampa, Florida. She then died of lip cancer in 1958.
