Biographical Note

Ives Hendrick (March 10, 1898 – May 28, 1972) was a psychiatrist and co-founder of the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Born in New Haven, Connecticut to Burton and Bertha Hendrick, he was given the name “Ives” after his mother’s maiden name. In 1918 he entered Catholic University and then was admitted to Yale, where he studied pre-medical courses and went to medical school. Hendrick began his professional career as a medical service house-officer in New York at Lennox Hill Hospital under the chief resident, Carl Reich. By 1926, he had moved to Boston to work at the Boston Psychopathic Hospital. Soon Dr. Chapman of the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt hospital in Baltimore persuaded Hendrick to join the medical staff, so he moved again to Baltimore, MD, where he stayed from 1927 until 1928. In 1928 Hendrick traveled to Europe, and was analyzed by Dr. Alexander in Berlin. In the next two years he studied at the Berlin Psychoanalytic Institute. Hendrick returned to Boston in 1930, helped co-found the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute as a charter member and became its elected president (he returned to the presidential role at BPI from 1946 to 1947). At the same time he was also president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, joined the Harvard Medical School teaching staff, was an analyst at McLean hospital, and a consultant for the Massachusetts General Hospital. Besides countless articles and papers, Hendrick published three books: Facts and Theories (1934, 1939, 1958), Birth of an Institute (1961) about the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute, and Psychiatry Today (1964). Hendrick passed away of natural causes in 1972 and is buried in Evergreen Cemetary, New Haven, Connecticut.

Series I. Correspondence, Professional,  1930-1971
This collection begins with correspondence because Ives Hendrick was such an avid letter-writer. Thirty-nine of the fifty-seven boxes in the collection are dedicated to I.H.’s letters.
The correspondence in this series is what Hendrick’s filing system referred to as professional. There is a lot of overlap between all the correspondence series, as Hendrick had friends within the profession with whom he would discuss business.
The files are arranged in alphabetical order. Most are labeled with specific names, but there are general files as well.

Series II. Correspondence, General,  1943-1971
This series was originally divided within Hendrick’s file cabinets into a 1943-1952 set, and a 1952-1971 set. As the series title indicates, these are general letters sent by or sent to Hendrick. Unlike Series I., this series is made up mostly of general files, rather than labeled with individual’s names.

Series III. Correspondence, Personal,  1902-1974
Hendrick and his mother, Bertha Hendrick, had an on-going correspondence from when I.H. was a schoolboy at camp until Mrs. Hendrick’s last years. This correspondence dominates this series. I.H. and his father, Burton, also had a sizable correspondence. Like their son, Hendrick’s parents kept many letters written by I.H.  After their deaths, I.H. added these letters to his files.
This collection is arranged in chronological order. Often, the original files could roughly determine the dates of letters when there was no date on the letter itself.

Series V.- Teaching Records,  1925-1968
The majority of the records from this series are from Harvard: the Medical School  and the Teaching Unit. There are also some from Massachusetts Mental Health. For more records from Mass. Mental Health, look in Series VI.
Some of the types of papers found are lectures, teaching outlines, student interviews, diagnostic interviews, correspondence, bibliographies, and institutional guidelines and schedules. Most of the documents are specific to I.H.’s teaching, rather than to the institution in which he taught.

Series VI.- Professional Organizations,  1940-1971
I.H. was involved in several organizations: American Psychoanalytic Association (APA), Boston Psychopathic Hospital (BPH), Southard Clinic, Massachusetts Mental Health Clinic (MMHC), Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (BPSI), and more. The majority of the records in this series are from the APA. The organizations are arranged in alphabetical order, with the                        exception of the APA, which is boxed separately, due to its size.
Many researchers may be looking for I.H.’s records from BPSI. Due to its confidential nature, most of these records have been scheduled for destruction, as mandated by law. Series VII. does contain some of the BPSI/BPI seminars. The committee files that fell into this category that Hendrick kept are as follows:

Series VIII.- Manuscripts, Reprints, Discussions,  1927-1972
Hendrick’s articles and manuscripts are arranged in alphabetical order. There are some samples of rough drafts for some of the more extensive projects, like Facts and Theories. There are also some unpublished manuscripts, such as “A Moment’s Glimpse of the Genius of Beethoven” and “Problems of Training in Modern Psychiatry.”
Part of this series deals with I.H.’s collection of other people’s published writings.  Originally, there were six cubic feet of these reprints. Because these were published and therefore available through other sources, the archivist chose to discard these reprints after recording the author, title and date. This index is labeled “List of Reprints Collected by I.H.” and it is in box 55.
There are few discussions; they date from the 1950s and 1960s.

Series IX.- Photographs,  1898-1971
There are approximately 290 items in this collection, with the bulk of materials being from the 1910s and 1930s. Approximately 250 of these items are photographic prints on paper ranging in size from about 1″ x 1″ to 8 1/2″ x 11.” Some of these are in mat frames. The rest of the collection includes approximately 25 photographic negatives on plastic and 15 pieces of ephemera. The negatives all correspond to a photographic print in this collection. The ephemera include Ives Hendrick’s death certificate, 7 postcards, and 3 emails on 8 1/2″ x 11″ printer paper from donors regarding additions to this series. Unless specified otherwise, each item listed here is a photographic print on paper.
Most of the photographs are of a personal nature showing family members and fall into one of three thematic categories:
1. Hendrick family portraits, circa 1898 to 1971
2. Summer camp activities of Ives Hendrick, Hobart Hendrick, and unidentified camp members, circa 1910 (a former version of this finding aid suggests these photographs are probably from 1913-1916)
3. Sightseeing by Ives Hendrick’s parents on vacation in Europe and/or the Mediterranean, circa 1930s.
It is useful to know who his family consisted of. Hendrick’s family members shown in this collection include:
• Ives’ parents: Hendrick, Burton Jesse, 1870-1949 and Hendrick, Bertha (Ives)
• Ives’ brother: Hendrick, Hobart Johnston, 1904-1971 and sister-in-law, Hendrick, Mary (French Byzbee), 1906-1972
• Ives’ wife (to whom he became divorced at some point unknown): Hendrick, Marie (McClung)
• Ives’ children: Ruznak, Martha (Hendrick); Hendrick, Ives Junior; and Rumsey, Jane (Hendrick)
Note on the acquisiton of photographs: A large collection of Hendrick’s family photographs were received from his daughter Jane Rumsey. 22 photographs of Ives Hendrick were added to this box by Dr. Sanford Gifford in November 2006.
Note on the arrangement of photographs: This collection has no original order, so items that relate to each other may not be physically next to one another.
Note on the digitization and access of photographs: In 2013, the photographs were scanned as JPEG and TIFF files and described by archival intern Allison Blakeslee. Each digital photograph is identified by the prefix “Hen” followed by a three-digit number reflecting the order in which the photographs were scanned. The photographs were scanned in the order that they appear in the collection. The collection has no original order, so photographs that appear to relate to each other may not be numerically close. Most photographs were scanned on the front side only. A few photographs and postcards had significant information on the verso (back) side and were scanned separately with their own “HenXXX” identifier. Please contact the BPSI for more information on accessing these digital photographs.
