Ernest E. Hadley, M.D.

Dr. Ernest E. Hadley, an outstanding psychoanalyst, writer and organizer of psychiatric affairs, died in Washington, D. C. on August 10, 1954 at the age of 60 years. For over 30 years, Dr. Hadley had been actively interested and engaged in psychiatric matters.

Born in Alton, Kansas, and a graduate of the University of Kansas Medical School he served his internship at th Walter Reed Army Hospital, after which he became a member of the staff of St. Elizabeth' Hospital (then under the direction of Dr. William A. White). He remained there for about ten years, leaving in 1930 to enter the private practice of his specialty. During the years at St. Elizabeth' Hospital he received a thorough training and experience in clinical psychiatry and early became interested in psychoanalysis. In this discipline he became thoroughly identified, and devoted himself to its promotion and practice during the rest of his productive years.

To mention a few of Dr. Hadley' activities, he was Director of the Washington Psychoanalytic Institute and Consultant to the Corporate Foundation for Research and Training in Psychiatry. He organized the William Alanson White Psychiatric Foundation and was its Trustee and Secretary for a period of time. He was active on the Board on Professional Standards of the American Psychoanalytic Association, where he served in several capacties, and was one of the originators and co-editor of the journal Psychiatry.

Dr. Hadley wrote a considerable number of important professional articles and participated in the meetings of the several medical societies of which he was a member. His passing is a serious loss not only to his family and many friends but to the profession which he graced so prominently.
