Biographical/Historical note

Haskell Norman was born July 24, 1915, in Lynn, Massachusetts and was educated at Boston Latin School and Johns Hopkins University. After doing graduate work at Harvard University and working for several years in the shoe industry, he entered medical school at St. Louis University, graduating first in his class. He was drafted into the Army medical corps, and completed his psychiatric residency at the Langley Porter Clinic and Letterman General Hospital in San Francisco. Norman established a private practice in San Francisco in the 1950s and was a training analyst at the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute until his retirement from medicine at the age of 75. Passionate about books and wine, Norman founded the Marin County Branch of the International Wine and Food Society in 1976, which grew to a membership of more than 600 and created a private library of rare scientific and medical first editions, including a collection of first-edition works by Sigmund Freud. Excited about sharing his collection, Norman made donations to numerous libraries including the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institution, where he taught, and also authored the book "One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine" in 1995. Haskell Norman died December 11, 1996 at Marin General Hospital after a brief illness.

Scope and contents note

The Norman papers include a collection of papers organized by subject, patient files by both Norman and Weiss, committee meetings and reports, the HFN Medical Corporation, correspondence, gifts to the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute and a miscellaneous series spanning the dates 1933 to 1985. The wide selection of papers in a variety of psychoanalytic subjects contain a mix of correspondence and manuscripts and give insight into the topics Norman held interest in. Patient files from both Dr. Norman and Dr. Weiss are presented in separate series. Wiess patient files belong to a single unnamed patient over several years of therapy while Norman’s patient files are much small files for a much larger group of patients. Committee meetings and reports cover work done by Norman in groups both within the psychology field and without, but predominantly cover his work with the Committee of Affiliate Societies. Gifts to the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute contain lists of book donations over several years.
