Kristine Mann

Dr. Kristine Mann was born in Orange, N.J., where her father, Charles Holbrook Mann, was a New Church minister and had been editor of the Messenger for 25 years. 

She received her M.D. from Cornell Medical School in 1913, and joined the faculty of Wellesley College.

In 1921 Dr. Mann began her career as a Jungian analyst, in New York City, achieving a position of high eminence in her profession. She was one of the founders of the Analytical Psychology Club of New York, and was active in promoting the two seminars which brought Dr. Jung to America. Not least among her many contributions to the Jungian movement here have been her scholarly translations of Dr. Jung's papers and other material from the Zurich seminars. Among her own inspiring papers presented at meetings of the Analytical Psychology Club the one which, at this time, is uppermost in all our minds is the unforgettable address on "The Shadow of Death," with its final message to us concerning the "complete unfolding of that four-petaled flower of eternal life which Jung has called the Self."
