Report of the Eleventh International Psycho-Analytical Congress

Anna Freud

The Eleventh International Psycho-Analytical Congress was held at Oxford from July 27 to 31, 1929. Dr. Max Eitingon (Berlin) presided.

It was gratifying to find that the site chosen for this year's Congress attracted the members of our Western and Transatlantic Branch Societies, the attendance from the countries they represented being considerably larger than formerly. On the other hand, of course, the distance unfortunately prevented many members of the Continental Societies who regularly attend the Congresses from being present, and the younger members—the hope of the psycho-analytical movement—in too many instances could only send written greetings in token of their sympathetic interest. Nevertheless, the attendance was by no means inconsiderable: 186 persons took part, 108 of whom were members of the International Psycho-Analytical Association. One could hardly imagine a more interesting place for the Congress than Oxford, with its dignified tradition of English culture and science. Our English friends, Dr. Ernest Jones and his wife, Mrs. Katherine Jones, Dr. Glover, Professor Flügel and Dr. Stoddart took the members of the Congress round the most interesting of Oxford's oldest colleges and to world-famous castles and other places of historical interest in the neighbourhood; the kindness of our colleagues on these occasions was indefatigable, and their knowledge of the places in question beyond praise. The evening before the Congress opened, Dr. Jones, in the name of the British Psycho-Analytical Society, welcomed the members and guests at an informal reception in the Hall of Queen's College, kindly lent by the courtesy of the Provost and Fellows, and on the final evening, when the scientific proceedings were concluded, all met again at a ceremonious banquet.

The preparations for the Congress were made by the Congress Reception Committee of the British Psycho-Analytical Society, organized by the untiring efforts of Mrs. Joan Riviere and Dr. Sylvia Payne, who may rest assured of the warmest gratitude of all who attended the Congress.
