Wright authored Out of Sight—Out of Mind, which reported the results of the CPS survey of conditions in CPS staffed mental hospitals. Based on some two thousand eyewitness reports of conditions gathered by CPS men and women from forty-six mental hospitals in sixteen states, the book was published by the National Mental Health Foundation in 1947. Much of the writing was done by Wright while he served as an attendant at the Greystone Park State Hospital unit, before he was assigned to the Mental Hygiene Program of the Civilian Public Service.
