A Girl’s Childhood

David A. Carlson

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the institutional history of the Yale Longitudinal Study (YLS) within its regional intellectual and disciplinary context. In particular, it looks at the so-called “New Haven-Stockbridge Group,” represented by the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and the Western New England Psychoanalytic Society in New Haven, Connecticut. The chapter focuses on a network of behavioral and social scientists with orientation in psychoanalysis, including John Dollard, Erik Erikson, Anna Freud, Jules Coleman, and August B. Hollingshead. These figures are located in a professional landscape that includes the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, the Austen Riggs Center, and New Haven's Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis.
