An Address on the Occasion of Presenting his Portrait to Ernest Jones

Sylvia Payne

This meeting is a unique event in the history of the British Psycho-Analytical Society and is to do honour to the founder by the presentation of his portrait. The portrait, painted by the distinguished artist Mr. Moynihan, is not only a good portrait but also a fine picture. We are very glad that Mr. Moynihan is here tonight and wish to thank him for enabling us to give Dr. Jones such a valuable present.

In my opinion it is not often that an eminent scientist can look back over the most active part of his life with as much satisfaction as Ernest Jones should be able to do. To have had the vision and to have made the opportunity to join in Freud's work from the beginning when scientists in general held aloof is a distinction which places Dr. Jones in a class almost alone.

Jones treated psycho-analytically his first case in England in 1905, the first person to use this technique outside of German-speaking countries. In 1908 he met Professor Freud at the first Psycho-Analytical Congress in Salzburg, which he helped to organize. From that time he became one of the band of six men, Jones, Abraham, Ferenczi, Eitingon, Rank, and Sachs, who were intimately associated with Freud's researches and were instrumental in introducing psycho-analysis to other countries.

Jones occupied the Chair of Psychiatry in Toronto till 1912, and in 1911 he founded the American Psycho-Analytical Association and the American Psycho-Pathological Association. He returned to London in 1913 and founded the London Psycho-Analytical Society.
