Obituary Notice: Renaldo Maduro

Brian Feldman

Renaldo Maduro's life was an attempt to synthesise opposites creatively. His enormous energy, vitality and creative spirit were halted by an early death. After being hospitalised with a serious illness in December 1987, Renaldo Maduro died on 29 January 1988 immediately prior to his forty-sixth birthday. He is mourned by his colleagues at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, where he was on the teaching faculty as a seminar leader, supervisor and, for a period, head of the curriculum committee.

Renaldo obtained membership of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco in 1977, and practised as an analytical psychologist for eleven years. During his relatively short professional career he made some significant contributions, and published widely in the field of anthropology and analytical psychology. He was a gifted yet controversial teacher. He helped to import the ideas of Michael Fordham and the London School of Analytical Psychology to San Francisco with great success. He had close contact with Michael Fordham both in London and San Francisco and he held in high esteem those Jungian analysts in London who have been forging a developmental perspective in analytical psychology. He was a collaborating editor on the Journal of Analytical Psychology.

Born in Suffern, New York, on 9 February 1942, Renaldo grew up in a predominantly Puerto Rican community. His interest in Latino culture stemmed from this period. His father's family were originally Sephardic Jews from Spain, who converted to Catholicism and moved first to Holland then to Central America and finally to New York. From an early age Renaldo developed an interest in Hindu culture and went to Cornell University, where he followed up on that interest, and obtained a B.A. degree in 1964, specialising in art history and Asian studies. After graduating from Cornell he obtained a Fulbright Fellowship to teach in India, and became a lecturer in art history at Benares Hindu University from 1964 to 1965. When he returned to the States he undertook graduate studies at the University of California at Berkeley, where he obtained an M.A. in Asian Studies and a Ph.D in anthropology with an emphasis on culture and personality.
