Breaking the Mold

A. D. R.

LAUNCHED IN JANUARY 1953, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association has for four decades published the Bulletin of the Association, its scientific proceedings, and scientific papers representing the best in psychoanalysis. Its founding editor was John Frosch. The first editorial board included Erik H. Erikson, Maxwell Gitelson, Phyllis Greenacre, Roy R. Grinker, Ives Hendrick, M. Ralph Kaufman, Robert P. Knight, Maurice Levine, Bertram D. Lewin, Rudolph M. Loewenstein, Norman Reider, and Robert Waelder. The inaugural issue was comprised of papers by Ralph R. Greenson, Annie Reich, Jacob A. Arlow, Lawrence S. Kubie, George Gero, K. R. Eissler, and Mark Kanzer.

The book section, inaugurated a year later, was edited by Nathaniel Ross. The first books reviewed were the Standard Edition translation of The Interpretation of Dreams and Robert Fliess's The Revivial of Interest in the Dream. The author of that review essay—a genre we hope to revive in the pages of JAPA—was Ernst Kris.

From JAPA's inception, the Bulletin for the Midwinter Meeting (later called the Fall Meeting) was printed in the second number of each volume, and the Bulletin for the Annual Meeting was printed in the fourth, a pattern that has continued until the present. The Scientific Proceedings section first appeared in volume 1, number 3, and included panel reports of the 1952 Midwinter meeting held just six months earlier. Panel topics included "The Traditional Psychoanalytic Technique and Its Variations," "Problems of Identification," "The Essentials of Psychotherapy as Viewed by the Psychoanalyst," and "Problems of Hypertension."
