A COMMITTEE FOR THE STUDY OF SUICIDE has been formed for the investigation of suicide as a social and psychological phenomenon. Dr. Gerald R. Jameison is president of the committee, and Dr. Gregory Zilboorg secretary and director of research; the other members of the Board of Directors are Mr. Marshall Field, Miss Elizabeth G. Brockett, and Drs. Henry Alsop Riley, Franklin G. Ebaugh, Herman Nunberg, Dudley D. Shoenfeld and Bettina Warburg. The Committee's program will include psychiatric and psychoanalytic studies carried out on selected hospitalized and ambulatory case material, paralleled by sociological, ethnological and historical investigation of the subject. Ethnological studies will include an expedition headed by a psychiatrically schooled anthropologist, a psychiatrist and a psychoanalyst in a region such as the Melanesian Islands or the Gulf of Papua, and in the interior of the Mexican Northwest as well as among some of the North American Indian tribes. Dr. Henry E. Sigerist of Johns Hopkins University and Dr. Edward Sapir of Yale University are consultant members of the Committee. The executive offices are located at Room 1404, the Medical Arts Center, 57 West 57th Street, New York.
