A brief note delineating the link between Freud and Julius Wagner von Jauregg, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Vienna during Freud's time, may serve to introduce what follows.

I. Introduction—Freud and Wagner-Jauregg

Although Julius Wagner von Jauregg was one year younger than Sigmund Freud, he finished his medical studies at the University of Vienna a year earlier. As a student he had worked with Salomon Stricker, Professor of Experimental Pathology, through whom he probably met Freud, who was similarly employed. The two knew each other well and even addressed each other by the familiar “du,” although they never became close friends (Jones, 1957). Wagner-Jauregg became a privat-dozent in neuropathology the same year as Freud, and three years later, in 1888, his privatdozentship was also extended to psychiatry. In 1889 he was appointed Extraordinary Professor of Psychiatry in Graz, and in 1893 he became Titular Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Vienna.

Wagner-Jauregg's primary contribution to psychiatry consisted of the discovery of the cure for general paresis of the insane by malaria therapy. He was active in advocating the widespread application of iodized salt as a prophylactic measure for cretinism.
