Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains materials related to the life and work of Horace Gray, a medical doctor, professor, and Jungian scholar who is best known for his work on the Gray-Wheelwright Jungian Type Survey and for translating many of C.G. Jung’s works. Materials include research files, manuscripts, translations, testing materials, illustrations, clippings, photographs, and correspondence. The bulk of the materials date from the early 1930s to the mid-1960s.
Horace Gray, M.D. (1887-1965) was a professor, Jungian scholar, and medical doctor who lived and worked primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Barbara. Gray was born on October 11, 1887 in Boston, Massachusetts to parents Amelia Amy Heard and Russell Gray. He married Katharine Meeker in 1915 and they had one child together, named Horace Gray, in 1916. Gray graduated from Stanford University Medical School and later returned as an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine in the early 1930s. During this time he also became acquainted with Joseph Wheelwright who was then working at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute at UCSF. In 1941, Gray, Jo Wheelwright and Jo’s wife, Jane, began a collaboration that lead to the publication of the Gray-Wheelwrights Jungian Type Survey in 1944. Between 1944 and 1949, Gray and Joseph Wheelwright published around eleven articles relating to their Survey work. Gray became one of the earliest members of the Society of Jungian Analysts of Northern California, joining in 1942. In the years between 1945-1950, it appears that Gray met with Jung for analysis and began translating some of Jung’s work. He retired from his faculty position at Stanford in 1950, and passed away on February 24, 1965 in Santa Barbara, California.
