March 9, 2017 | Our newest addition: The Horace Gray Collection

It is with great pleasure that we announce the completion of our newest addition to the Archive – the Horace Gray Collection. It is our largest collection to date, measuring approximately 7 linear feet, and also our most enigmatic. Very little is known about Dr. Gray beyond his work with Dr. and Mrs. Wheelwright on the Gray-Wheelwright Jungian Type Survey. His papers give us a deeper and more nuanced view of his life and work.

Horace Gray, M.D.

Horace Gray was born in 1887 in Boston, Massachusetts to parents Amelia Heard and Russell Gray, and attended Stanford University Medical School in the mid-1920s. He later returned to Stanford as an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine. During his tenure at Stanford, he became acquainted with Joseph Wheelwright who was then at Langley Porter at UCSF. Their collaboration began soon after, and the Gray-Wheelwright Jungian Type Survey was published in 1944. Gray was one of the earliest members of the Society of Jungian Analysts of Northern California and a prolific translator of Jung’s works. There is evidence he met with Jung between 1945-1950, although how frequently and where they met is not clear.  Dr. Gray passed away in February 1965 in Santa Barbara, California at the age of 78.

This collection documents Dr. Gray’s diverse research interests – from smoking and addiction to psychological types and marriage – and contains an extensive collection of test questionnaires and forms. Materials include research files, manuscripts, translations, testing materials, illustrations, clippings, photographs, and correspondence. While inclusive dates range from 1902-1965, the majority of materials date from the early1930s to mid-1960s.

We invite you to visit the archive and explore this fascinating collection.

November 6, 2014 | Processing of Joe Henderson Papers Complete

The Joe Henderson Papers

The JIA is pleased to announce that the processing of the Joseph L. Henderson Papers is complete. This collection represents many important firsts for the Archive. It is the first collection processed in alignment with our new, more standardized processing guidelines, and also the first collection for which we have permission to open to researchers. Importantly, the collection is described in a detailed finding aid that will be posted on this site and attached to the collection’s catalog record in KOHA. We are thrilled to have these materials and invite all members of the Institute community to visit the Archive and explore this collection.

The collection contains four boxes of personal papers collected by Dr. Thomas Kirsch after Dr. Henderson’s passing in 2007. The collections documents Dr. Henderson’s involvement with ARAS, the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism, the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, the Journal of Analytical Psychology, as well as his relationships with various colleagues and friends including Kay Bradway, Virginia Beane Rutter, Murray Stein, Michael Fordham, and Thomas Kirsch. Materials include correspondence, photographs, art books, museum publications, drawings, handwritten lectures, notes and article drafts, book reviews, article re-prints, one interview transcript, and institute fliers and paperwork. The majority of materials date from the 1960s to late 1990s.

In addition to the main collection of papers, the Archive also maintains a Joseph Henderson Reference Collection (Box 5). The Reference Collection contains general reference materials about Joe Henderson’s life and work, compiled by the Archive.

We look forward to seeing you in the Archive soon.
