XP13A - Ries, Hannah (c1886-c1975) psychoanalyst


Little is known about Mrs Hannah Ries, although she appears to have been one of the many European psychoanalysts who emigrated to the UK prior to the Second World War, with the assistance of colleagues from the British Psychoanalytical Society. She was elected to associate membership of the British Psychoanalytical Society in 1940 and to full membership in 1946. She moved to Los Angeles, USA, around 1964.

Her dates of birth and death are not known, but she was noted to be aged eighty or over in 1966 (minutes of the Council of the Institute of Psychoanalysis, 7 Feb 1966) and her death was reported in the proceedings of a business meeting of the International Psychoanalytical Association in 1975.
