Glueck writes on October 7 to Arthur Foxe, a Freudian psychiatrist and psychotherapist and an expert in criminology, to express interest in his "very significant little article called 'An Additional Classification of Criminals'....Mr. Glueck and I would appreciate it very much if we might have a copy of your paper entitled 'Crime and Sexual Development'".

You can't live on one article. So will you please sit down and do two things for me? First work on a good case with all the details that you can give me, with all the dreams that you can get, something on the style of 'The Psychoanalysis of a Sodomist' which you published years ago in the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry....

TYPED LETTER WITH EXCELLENT CONTENT INCLUDING AN ATTACK ON FREDRIC WERTHAM SIGNED BY AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIST KARL MENNINGER., Menninger, Karl. (1893-1990). American psychiatrist and one of the founders of the Menninger Foundation.
13 Menninger, Karl. (1893-1990). American psychiatrist and one of the founders of the Menninger Foundation. TYPED LETTER WITH EXCELLENT CONTENT INCLUDING AN ATTACK ON FREDRIC WERTHAM SIGNED BY AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIST KARL MENNINGER.
Washington, DC: November 22, 1957. 1957. Very good Signed
- Letter filling one side of an approximately 11-inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide sheet of Archives of Criminal Psychodynamics letterhead with Menninger's name listed as a member of the Editorial Board. Signed "Best wishes / Karl". There are three tiny brown marks at top left. The bottom edge of the letter is slightly darkened with its left corner lightly creased. Folded twice for mailing. Very good.

Menninger writes to Freudian psychiatrist and expert in criminology Dr. Arthur Foxe about a guest editorial Foxe is to contribute to an issue of Archives of Criminal Psychodynamics on crime and psychiatry. Foxe is also to help round up other psychiatrists to contribute to the issue. Menninger complains about the dearth of psychiatrists who know anything about crime: "We need cases, cases, criminal cases. Wertham, who never analyzed a single case of murder wrote a book about murder. He does not know anything but he just writes. We can't expect much from men like that, but we do expect help from one like you. So please get busy and write the editorial, also a case study...."

Karl Menninger [1893-1990] was born in Topeka, Kansas where, in 1919, he founded the Menninger Clinic with his father and later the Menninger Sanitarium. The Menninger Foundation was established in 1941. After World War II Menninger was instrumental in founding the Winter Veterans Administration Hospital in Topeka which became the largest psychiatric training center in the world. The Menninger School of Psychiatry, which he founded in 1946, was renamed in his honor the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry and Mental Health Science.

TWO TYPED LETTERS TO PSYCHIATRIST AND CRIMINOLOGIST DR. ARTHUR N. FOXE SIGNED BY PSYCHIATRIST ROBERT R. MEZER., Mezer, Robert R. Massachusetts psychiatrist who examined Albert DeSalvo ("The Boston Strangler"), obtaining his confession.
14 Mezer, Robert R. Massachusetts psychiatrist who examined Albert DeSalvo ("The Boston Strangler"), obtaining his confession. TWO TYPED LETTERS TO PSYCHIATRIST AND CRIMINOLOGIST DR. ARTHUR N. FOXE SIGNED BY PSYCHIATRIST ROBERT R. MEZER.
Boston, MA: August 26 and Septembeer 27, 1957. 1957. Very good. Signed
Boston, MA: August 26 and Septembeer 27, 1957.. 1957.. Very good.. - Both letters are typed on the cream-colored letterhead, 11 inches high by 8-1/2 inches wide, of "The Commonwealth of Massachusetts / Department of Mental Heath / Division of Legal Medicine". The August letter fills one side of the letterhead and is signed "Robert R. Mezer, M.D" with his typed title "Clinical Director / Parole Clinic and Norfolk Treatment Center". The September letter fills one side of the letterhead with 2 paragraphs on a follow-up sheet and is signed "Robert R. Mezer, M.D." without the typed title. The top corners of both letters are lightly creased with the right corners slightly darkened and both are folded twice for mailing. Together with the September mailing envelope. Very good.

Two splendidly detailed and discursive letters from one psychiatrist to another. Dr. Mezer writes to Dr. Foxe in August 1957 after reading Foxe's book "Studies in Criminology". Mezer explains that the Division of Legal Medicine offering psychiatric services to prisoners and parolees has only recently been established and he asks many questions about Foxe's experience of treating patients in a prison setting. He plans also to read Foxe's book "Crime and Sexual Development".

Mezer writes his second letter in September 1957 after Foxe has sent him copies of "Crime and Sexual Development" and "The Life and Death Instincts". He muses at length about Foxe's ideas: "I found myself wondering if some of the conclusions were on the basis of the associations of your patients or on the basis of your own interpretations and formulations. For example, why is robbery with a gun late anal rather than phallic, that is, might not the gun be a phallic symbol?. Another example might be seeing the car as a female symbol instead of as symbolic of intercourse. This is not said in any critical light, as our limited case material to date tends to confirm the primitive pre-genitality you describe...."

Mezer, author of "Dynamic Psychiatry in Simple Terms" [1960] examined Albert DeSalvo ["The Boston Strangler"] at the request of F. Lee Bailey. Mezer shocked the courtroom by reporting. "DeSalvo told me he was the strangler....He told me he strangled 13 women...and he went into details of some of them, telling me some of the most intimate acts he committed."

A psychiatrist and criminologist, Dr. Foxe was also an avid collector of skating books and even published a skating bibliography.

First edition.

"In this very original book, Theodore Reik solves a fascinating psychologic puzzle: What is the unconscious meaning of the melodies that haunt us? Why do remembered tunes often interrupt our consciously directed thinking? His investigations take the reader step-by-step to the provocative conclusion that the off-stage music accompanying our thoughts and actions has a secret meaning message." -- [Quoted from the dust wrapper's blurb].

The prominent psychoanalyst Theodor Reik (1888-1969) was one of Freud's first students in Vienna. His university dissertation on Flaubert's "Temptation of Saint Anthony" was the first psychoanalytic dissertation ever written. His take on Freud's "Haunting Melody" theme, contrasted with that of his mentor in that Reik demonstrated that musical structure can represent feelings and emotions better than words. Thus music can convey moods and unknown feelings that can help in resolving repressed conflict. Emigrating from Germany to Holland in 1934, he escaped the Nazis by then fleeing to America in 1938. Reik went on to found the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis in New York. It was one of the first psychoanalytic training centers. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
