Archive Overview

The C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco Archive

IT IS THE VISION of the San Francisco Jung Institute Library & Archives to serve the Jungian community by documenting and preserving the memory and contributions of its visionaries, founding members, and current leaders and practitioners. Our commitment to this work stems from a collectively-held belief in the importance of historical knowledge and a desire to remember and honor the Institute’s past and present members.

THE PURPOSE of the Archives is to collect, preserve, and make available for scholarship significant written and graphic documents pertaining to the history of analytical psychology in Northern California. The Archives welcomes materials related to the following: (1) the background, development, and membership of the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, (2) Jung’s life, family, friends, colleagues, and early followers, and as resources permit, (3) the growth of analytical psychology.

Physical Access | The Archives Committee welcomes inquiries concerning access to the physical collection which is open to members of the San Francisco Jung Institute, candidates and, with some restrictions, to staff, clinic interns, IAAP members from affiliated institutes, and members of the Friends of Jung, and Analytical Psychology Club of San Francisco. Others may be granted access to the Archives for research purposes by contacting the Institute Librarian directly.
