Just mentioning two links with differing accounts: 1) "Subsequently, Jackson, suffered what appeared to be a stroke with paralysis and speech impairment, but the disability led caretakers to believe he had gone mad. He spent seven years at the McLean Asylum in Somerville, until his death on August 28, 1880 at age 75." http://www.anesthesia-nursing.com/ether2.html 2) "In 1873, Jackson was diagnosed as insane, possibly precipitated by angst that he never received what he believed was his right of priority in the ether controversy (Fenster 2001)." http://www.redorbit.com/news/display/?id=58933 A book by J.M. Fenster (you can "search inside"): http://www.amazon.com/Ether-Day-Greatest-Discovery-Haunted/dp/0060933178/ More on "McLean Hospital": http://www.mclean.harvard.edu/about/history/
