The C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco Archive serves the Jungian community by documenting and preserving the memory and contributions of its visionaries, founding members, and current leaders and practitioners. Our commitment to this work stems from a collectively held belief in the importance of historical knowledge and a desire to remember and honor the Institute’s past and present members.
The purpose of the Archive is to collect, preserve, and make available for scholarship significant written and graphic documents pertaining to the history of analytical psychology in Northern California. The Archive welcomes materials related to the following: (1) the background, development, and membership of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, (2) Jung’s life, family, friends, colleagues, and early followers, and as resources permit, (3) the growth of Analytical Psychology.
