August Hoch

Author Code: OAHX

Born: (?) 1868 - Basle, Switzerland

Died: Sep. 23, 1919 - San Francisco, California, USA

Hoch emigrated to the United States in 1887. He then studied medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland, where he received his degree. In 1893, he joined the McClean Hospital in Boston as a pathologist and subsequently became first assistant at the Bloomingdale Sanitarium. In 1907, he published The Psychogenic Factors in the Development of Psychosis, which brought him to the attention of the Columbia University Medical Center. He was appointed director of the Department of Psychiatry there in 1909. In 1910 he was one of the founders of the American Psychopathological Association and following the resignation of Adolf Meyer later that year, became the director of the State Pathological Institute at Ward's Island, New York. In 1913, he was also a lecturer in Medical Psychology at Cornell University and the Psychiatric Institute of New York. Hoch was the first to apply psychodynamic theory to psychiatric practice in the U.S. After seven years at Ward's Island, Hoch moved to San Francisco in 1917. Suffering from nephritis, he succumbed two years later. Hoch was also an associate editor of the Archive of Neurology and Psychiatry. His other works include Constitutional Factors in the Dementia Praecox Group (1910), On Some of the Mental Mechanisms in Dementia Praecox (1910) and Benign Stupors which was published posthumously in 1921 and had been completed by his colleague Dr. MacCurdy.
