After being admitted to the Mayo Clinic in November of 1960, there were stories of Hemingway receiving "electroconvulsive therapy" as many as 15 time. He was described as a wreck upon his release in January of 1951. It has been told that Ernest Hemingway's behavior was similar to that of his father's in the days before his suicide. Even though the stories of his death were said to be accidental, he had died as a result of a self-inflicted with his "favorite shotgun".
