Events in the Psychoanalytic World


Our Baltimore correspondent, Dr. Ruth W. Lidz, informs us that the Baltimore group has been extremely busy and have not seen much of one another. This has led to the suggestion of a social meeting at the end of the semester, to which the students would also be asked. The suggestion was greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm.

The Baltimore group has had several meetings at which there have been invited guests.

On March 5th Dr. Ives Hendrick from Boston read a paper on “The Early Development of the Ego: Identification in Infancy.” Despite the fact that the meeting was on a Sunday evening and in the middle of the grippe epidemic, it was fairly well attended, and an enjoyable discussion ensued.

On March 25th Dr. Sidney Margolin of New York gave a paper on “Behavior of the Stomach During Psychoanalysis: A Clinical Study.” Dr. Jacob Finesinger and Dr. Jerome Hartz were the discussants.

Dr. Finesinger has recently become a member of the Baltimore group, and the meeting of March 25th was the first one of the local group which he attended.

Dr. Ernest Hadley, who, as reported in the last Bulletin by the Washington group, has become the new Director of the Washington-Baltimore Psychoanalytic Institute, will spend an evening with the Baltimore group in May, presiding over a discussion on “Termination of Analysis.”


Dr. Joseph Michaels writes us of a number of meetings which were held at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute on December 7, 1949.

Professor Francis W. Gramlich, Jr., head of the Department of Philosophy at Dartmouth College, spoke on “Political Ideals and Man's Nature.” This paper was discussed by three members of the faculty of Harvard University—Drs. Talcott Parsons and Edward A. Shils from the Department of Social Relations and Dr. L. H. Hartz from the Department of Government.
