Announcement by the Central Executive

Anna Freud


On January 7, 1928, Dr. Emil Oberholzer, for many years President of the Swiss Psycho-Analytical Society, having resigned office, founded a new psycho-analytical society. He was joined in this by a number of medical members of the old Swiss Psycho-Analytical Society: Dr. H. Baenziger, Privatdozent Dr. R. Brun, Dr. A. Grossmann, Dr. A. Löpfe, Dr. M. Müller, Frau Dr. M. Oberholzer, Dr. H. J. Schmid. The new Society, to be called the Swiss Medical Psycho-Analytical Society, was formed because the medical men named 'felt compelled to found a medical organization'. In February, 1928, the new Society approached the Central Executive of the International Psycho-Analytical Association with a request for admission to the Association, giving their reasons for this step in a long memorandum. After mature consideration the Central Executive judged it necessary to disallow this request, because it seemed to them that there was not sufficient justification for founding the new Society and above all because they thought it very regrettable that a disruption of the original Society should be regarded as the only way to overcome the difficulties which had arisen. The direction of the original Swiss Society was taken over by a new Council, with Dr. Med. P. Sarasin as President. The other members of this Council are Herr Zulliger, Dr. Med. E. Blum, Dr. Med. H. Behn Eschenburg and Pfarrer Pfister, who shewed praiseworthy zeal in trying to infuse fresh life into the old society and to carry its work deeper.


At the end of 1927 the Brazilian Psycho-Analytical Society was founded at San Paulo for the purpose of providing a centre for the study of psycho-analysis in Brazil and of arousing more widespread interest in the subject in the scientific circles of the country. The names of the provisional Council of the new Society are as follows:

President: Dr. Franco da Rocha, Resident Professor at the Psychiatric Clinic of the Medical Faculty of San Paulo, founder and formerly director of the Hospital at Juquery.

Vice-president: Professor Dr. Raul Briquet, Professor at the Obstetric Clinic of the Medical Faculty of San Paulo.

Treasurer: Professor Lourenço Filho, Professor of Psychology at the Academy of Higher Public Education at San Paulo.
