About this Item

Forel, Auguste-Henri (1848-1931). Autograph postcard signed, in German, to Frau Schwiedland. Graz, April 17, 1901. 92 x 141 mm. Fine. From Auguste-Henri Forel, Swiss psychiatrist, neuroanatomist and myrmecologist. Forel was professor of psychiatry at the University of Zurich medical school and head of the Burghölzi asylum. He was a co-founder of the neuron theory, and is also credited with being Switzerland's first sexologist. He investigated the brain structures of humans and ants, and wrote a classic study of ant society (Le monde social des fourmis, 1923). Forel's postcard can be translated as follows: "My dear Madam, Our evening yesterday was a nice event-ca. 2000 listeners, lively discussion. "The date of my return from Budapest I will learn only while I am in Budapest. "However I would like to ask you for a favor because the future of the Alcoholic Anonymous Institute is close to my heart. "I would like to ask your son to get a copy for me of the Austrian Law Association and the corresponding paragraph of the penal law upon my return. "I would also like to have another discussion with Dr. Daum, maybe on Sunday, concerning this affair. With heartiest regards, yours very truly, thankfully and respectfully, A. Forel.".
