extracted from the web:
"The Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung lectures at Clark University were only one part of a series of scholarly conferences held during July and September of 1909 to observe the University's twentieth anniversary of becoming the 2nd graduate school in the United States. Indeed, Clark's distinguished reputation was part of the reason that Freud and Jung decided to speak here; they were relatively unknown while Clark was highly respected. Freud's lectures at Clark propelled him towards becoming the well-known figure that he is today because his lectures brought him to the attention of a much wider audience.
It was G. Stanley Hall, Clark University's President, who brought about the conferences and who secured Freud and Jung as speakers. For the 1909 celebration, Hall organized conferences about the university's major areas of study: mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, pedagogy, child welfare, and international relations. He was able to get men who were renowned in each of these fields to come lecture because they were to be part of the celebration of one of America's foremost institutions of graduate education. Hall was well known as a pioneer among American psychologists and had previously corresponded with Freud. As a result, he was able to get Freud to come deliver the only lectures he ever gave in the Western Hemisphere.
Freud's five lectures were given the overall heading "The Origin and Development of Psychoanalysis" and he gave the first one on the morning of Tuesday, September 7th. Jung spoke about "The Association Method" in his three lectures, the first of which was given on Thursday, September 9th. William Stern, H. S. Jennings, Franz Boas, Adolf Meyer, and E. B. Titchener gave the other lectures in the psychology conference.
Although there is no record of who attended the lectures, there is a photo of many of those attending on September 10th. It is unlikely that many people attended every lecture at the conference. In fact, Freud and Jung did not even attend all of the lectures; they found one so boring that they left for a long walk in the nearby countryside.For speaking at the conference, both Freud and Jung received honorary degrees from Clark. For Freud, who was visibly moved by the honor, it was the only such degree he would ever receive. In his autobiography, Freud wrote about what the Clark lectures meant to him. He wrote: "In Europe I felt as though I were despised; but over there I found myself received by the foremost men as an equal. As I stepped onto the platform at Worcester to deliver my Five Lectures upon Psychoanalysis it seemed like the realization of some incredible day-dream: psychoanalysis was no longer a product of delusion, it had become a valuable part of reality." Clark University's former historian, William A. Koelsch, has written a booklet that is titled Incredible Day-Dream: Freud and Jung at Clark, 1909. It is over 50 pages in length and discusses Freud and Jung's trip to and ectures at the 1909 psychology conference at Clark University. The cost, including shipping, is $5.
There are also two photos available of the 1909 Psychology Conference at Clark University. One is of Sigmund Freud, G. Stanley Hall, Carl Jung, A. A. Brill, Ernest Jones, and Sandor Ferenczi; an 8 x 10 black and white photo of this costs $25. The other is of both those who spoke at and who attended the conference on September 10, 1909; there were over forty people in the photo including the men in the other photo as well as William James and J. M. Cattell; an 8 x 10 black and white photo of this costs $25. These photos are for personal use, not for reproduction."
From Wikipedia on Erich Fromm (for dates of his life in America)

"Erich Fromm was born on March 23, 1900, at Frankfurt am Main, the only child of Orthodox Jewish parents. He started his academic studies in 1918 at the University of Frankfurt am Main with two semesters of jurisprudence. During the summer semester of 1919, Fromm studied at the University of Heidelberg, where he switched from studying jurisprudence to sociology under Alfred Weber (brother of the better known sociologist Max Weber), the psychiatrist-philosopher Karl Jaspers, and Heinrich Rickert. Fromm received his PhD in sociology from Heidelberg in 1922. During the mid-1920s, he was trained to become a psychoanalyst through Frieda Reichmann's psychoanalytic sanatorium in Heidelberg. He began his own clinical practice in 1927. In 1930, he joined the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research and completed his psychoanalytical training.

After the Nazi takeover of power in Germany, Fromm moved to Geneva and then, in 1934, to Columbia University in New York. Together withKaren Horney and Harry Stack Sullivan, Fromm belongs to a Neo-Freudian school of psychoanalytical thought. Horney and Fromm each had a marked influence on the other's thought, with Horney illuminating some aspects of psychoanalysis for Fromm and the latter elucidating sociology for Horney. Their relationship ended in the late 1930s.[2] After leaving Columbia, Fromm helped form the New York branch of the Washington School of Psychiatry in 1943, and in 1946 co-founded the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychology. He was on the faculty of Bennington College from 1941 to 1949.


From Wikipedia on Oskar Pfister (February 12, 1873 – August 6, 1956)...a Swiss Lutheran minister and lay psychoanalyst who was native of Wiedikon./ He studied theology, philosophy and psychology at the Universities of Zurich and Basel, earning his degree in 1898 at the philosophical faculty. Subsequently, he became a minister in Wald (canton of Zürich), where he remained until 1920./Pfister is remembered for his efforts involving the application of psychoanalysis into the science of education, as well as his belief system in a synthesis of psychology andtheology./He was a pioneer of modern Swiss psychology, belonging to a psychoanalytical circle in Zurich that was centered around Eugen Bleuler and Carl Jung. In 1919, he formed theSwiss Society for Psychoanalysis. Although the psychiatrist Emil Oberholzer founded a separate Swiss Medical Society for Psychoanalysis in 1928, Pfister stuck with the group he had started, defending Sigmund Freud's position on lay analysis that Oberholzer's group rejected.[1]

Pfister was an early associate of Freud's, maintaining an ongoing correspondence with the latter from 1909 to 1939 (year of Freud's death). Pfister believed that theology and psychology were compatible disciplines, and advocated the concept of a "Christian Eros". He was especially interested in Freud's concepts of the Oedipus Complex, castration anxiety and infantile sexuality. From a religious standpoint, Pfister advocated a return to what he saw as the original fundamental teachings of Jesus Christ. /Today, the "Oskar Pfister Award" is awarded by the American Psychiatric Association along with the Association of Professional Chaplains for significant contributions to the field of religion and psychiatry.
