Second Quarter, 1930
April 29, 1930. The meeting was preceded by a banquet at the Academy of Medicine in honour of our European guests. The programme consisted of papers by Dr. Helene Deutsch: Zur Genese des Familienromans'; by Dr. R. Spitz: 'Stage-fright'; by Dr. S. Radó: 'Zur Psychoanalyse der Rauschgftsuchten'; by Dr. F. Alexander: 'An infantile dream'. Dr. Jelliffe closed the meeting with a speech of welcome and appreciation to our guests. There was no business meeting.
May 27, 1930. Dr. A. A. Brill: Review of Das Unbehagen in der Kultur. At the business meeting the resignation of Dr. Oswald Boltz was accepted. Dr. George S. Amsden was elected to full membership, and Dr. Susanna S. Haigh and Mrs. Margaret J. Powers to Associate Membership.
Outside the regular meetings the group has had the privilege of being able to attend a series of lectures, in May, 1930, on the neuroses by Frau Dr. Deutsch; on dreams by Dr. Alexander; and a clinical seminar by Dr. Radó, as well as several public lectures by these and other guests from abroad, including Miss Chadwick and Pfarrer Pfister.
The Educational Committee has also held a series of informal colloquia and seminars weekly. One series on problems of interpretation was held by Dr. Lewin, with Drs. Stern, Meyer and Brill as leaders; one on metapsychology, including a review of Freud's papers on this topic, by Dr. Zilboorg, with Drs. Brill, Feigenbaum and Lewin as leaders. These were well attended, and the Committee is encouraged to go on with work of this sort.
No regular meeting was held in June.
