Adolf Meyer

Author Code: OAMY

Born: Sep. 13, 1866 - Niederwinigen, Switzerland

Died: Mar. 17, 1950 - Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Educated at the University of Zurich where he studied medicine, Meyer received his MD in 1892. He traveled to America and began working as a psychiatrist at the University of Chicago. Over the next sixteen years he held similar positions at Illinois Eastern Hospital for the Insane, Worcester Insane Hospital, Clark University, Pathological Institute of New York State Hospitals and Cornell University. In 1908, he was appointed professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the following year became the psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital. While there, he directed the development of the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic. He remained at Johns Hopkins until his retirement in 1941 and was one of the most influential figures in psychiatry in America. He is responsible for the concept of psychobiology, mental hygiene and improved patient case history recording. Initially Freudian in his views, he eventually distanced himself from the sexual influences that Freud expounded as a basis for psychological disorders. Meyer did not produce any books, but did publish numerous papers.
