CIRCULAR

on Matters of the Psychoanalytic Foundation.

If money management permits, I would like to distribute two prizes a year from the interest from the foundation's endowment. I am consulting on this with the members of the Committee: Dr. Ferenczi, Dr. v. Freund, and Dr. Rank.

a)   One of the prizes should be designated for a purely medical work, the other for one which successfully applies analysis to a nonmedical theme. (So, Imago- and Zeitschrift-type.)

b)   The prizes should each be in the amount of 1,000 crowns and should be paid out at the time they are awarded. It should be possible, instead of one big prize, to award two small ones of 500 crowns each to two different authors.

c)   The awarding of the prizes should take place each year on September 27, and be announced shortly thereafter, in commemoration of the Congress in Budapest, with which the analytic foundation is connected. If a Congress takes place in the fall, the announcement of the prizes should take place at this Congress.

d)   I am undecided as to whether I should name this prize after the city of Budapest or after the formal sponsor, Dr. Stefan Bárczy. What speaks in favor of the latter decision is the fact that the fund also bears this name, but what speaks against it is the fact that the person of the Lord Mayor of Budapest came to psychoanalysis about the same way that [the name of] Pontius Pilate came into the Creed.
