Abstract

Cliief of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. IT IS AN honor of no small moment to present the Emanuel Miller Memorial Lecture to this distinguished Association. It is, for me, an especial occasion because Professor Miller was a man I greatly admired. Although he was known to me through his writings, we met fzrst when he visited The Johns Hopkins Hospital in February 1960. It was as though I were touching history, not only through the man who had founded the first Child Guidance Clinic in Britain, but one who had taken his tripos from Lord Russell and Sir Charles Sherrington and had been a pupil of Henry Head and Babinski. He gave us a splendid seminar on "The Semantic Problems ofthe Classification of Child Disorders". His wisdom and erudition were equalled only by the aesthetic sensibility evident in his quiet comment to me on how much my wife Carola put him in mind of a Spanish beauty painted by Goya. That visit led me to Betty Miller's splendid biography of Robert Browning. Two years later, I was privileged to spend an afternoon with Professor Miller at Lincoln's Inn Fields
