This chapter employs details of what happened in New York to evoke the individual and institutional events that were so fateful for the general history of psychoanalysis in the United States, suggesting the personal costs and tragedy involved when established European figures had to adjust to their new professional and social environment. The New York Psychoanalytic Society, the main center of psychoanalysis in America, had once recruited Sándor Radó to bring weight to their fledgling institute and now had at its disposal a depth of experience. The American Psychoanalytic Association transformed itself from a loosely knit federation into a central power that policed standards throughout the country. Sigmund Freud's 1909 visit to Clark University helped promote the growth of the earliest American brand of Freudianism.
