Charles Frederick Menninger Award

The American Psychoanalytic Association at its annual meeting in Chicago on 12 May, 1957, conferred the first Charles Frederick Menninger Award on Dr. Charles Fisher. Dr. Fisher is on the staff of the Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, and is a training analyst of the New York Psychoanalytic institute.

The Award was established a year ago by Dr. Karl A. Menninger and Dr. William C. Menninger, of the Menninger Foundation, as a memorial to their father, who was the founder of the original Menninger Sanitarium at Topeka, Kansas. The Award is to be given annually for original research in psycho-analysis. The members of the Award Committee are five former Presidents of the Association: Dr. Leo H. Bartemeier of Baltimore, Maryland; Dr. Maxwell Gitelson of Chicago, Illinois; Dr. M. Ralph Kaufman of New York City; Dr. Robert P. Knight of Stockbridge, Massachusetts; and Dr. Karl A. Menninger of Topeka, Kansas. Dr. Fisher received the Award in recognition of experimental work on the role of primary modes of perception in dream formation. In a series of carefully controlled experiments he was able to verify some of the basic theoretical principles originally postulated by Freud in his work on dreams. The work was carried on in the Department of Psychiatry of the Mount Sinai Hospital and was made possible through the assistance of the Foundations' Fund for Research in Psychiatry.

The papers in which the result of this work is presented were published in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association: 'Dreams and Perception', 2, 1954, 389–445; 'Dreams, Images, and Perception', 4, 1956, 5–48
