Carl Gustav Jung

The Center for the History of Medicine is happy to announce that the audio recordings of the C. G. Jung Biographical Archive have been digitized and are now available to researchers. Previously accessible only in transcript form, the collection consists of 181 interviews with Jung’s family, friends, colleagues, and contemporaries. The interviews, which took place from 1968 to 1972, were funded by the Francis G. Wickes Foundation and were conducted by Dr. Gene F. Nameche. The collection was donated to the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine in 1972. A mentee of Sigmund Freud, Jung was a leader in dream analysis and is credited with founding the field of analytical psychology.

Due to restrictions set by the interviewees, some interviews are closed to access. In addition, access to the entire collection is restricted to onsite use only. For more information regarding access, please contact the Public Services staff.

The digitization of the Jung Biographical Archive was supported by the Carl Gustav Jung Fund, created at the time of the collection’s donation to ensure its longterm research use and accessibility.

  1. I was the junior editor under Dr. Nameche from 1968 for many years, editing the initial transcriptions from analog tape, working in Widener and sending them on to Houghton. As Dr. Nameche is long deceased, if I can be helpful to scholars I can be reached at the above address.

    Thanks so much for your comment, we appreciate your interest in the collection. The onsite use only restriction for the collection extends to the digitized copies, so unfortunately we are unable to make them available online.
