literature. Freud first published The History of an Infantile Neurosis in 1918. Some ten years later, Ruth Mack Brunswick published A Supplement to Freud's 'History of an Infantile Neurosis'.

Now Dr. Muriel Gardiner reports on several meetings with the Wolf-man which began in 1938 and ended in 1949. Thus one has an opportunity to study an extensive case history of the patient. Subsequently this man went through the Nazi invasion of Austria, World War II, the occupation of his country by the Russians, and the death of his wife. Robert Waelder, in his introductory comments to the paper, stresses how valuable such long-term follow-ups are in helping us understand the relation of the individual's neurosis and treatment to the rest of his life.
