From its inception in 1911, the New York Psychoanalytic Society has counted women among its members, but it was not until the late 1930s that women began to play a major role in its affairs. The contributions of these women analysts to the development of NYPSI and psychoanalysis are illustrated by focusing on both well-known figures and those whose contributions have faded from awareness over time. The first two women members of NYPSI were Beatrice Hinkle (1874-1953) and Josephine Jackson (1865-1945).

The contributions of the diverse group of women analysts who followed in their wake will be outlined by Nellie Thompson. The lives and careers of Margaret Fries, Lillian Malcove, Edith Jacobson and Berta Bornstein will be discussed by Patricia Nachman, Mary Kay O’Neil and Helene Keable.


Helene Keable, M.D., is a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, and a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute.

Patricia A. Nachman, Ph.D., is a member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute, and a child and adult psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. She is the former director of the Margaret Mahler Observational Research Nursery.

Mary Kay O’Neil, Ph.D., is a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Canadian Institute of Psychoanalysis in Toronto. She is the former Director of the Quebec English Institute in Montreal.

Nellie Thompson, Ph.D., is an historian and member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute, where she is Curator of the Archives & Special Collections of the A. A. Brill Library.

Students, academics and clinical professionals in the analytic community are encouraged to attend. Members of the general public are also welcome.

Light refreshments will be served in the back of the Auditorium from 7:30 – 8 PM.
