Dr. Erich Lindemann (1900-1974) was a significant leader in the field of psychiatry and an important contributor to mental health services and awareness in Boston. His work has been cited as some of the earliest significant research revealing the long-term impacts of grief and trauma, and he is said to have influenced other well-known grief theorists, like John Bowlby and Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. William James College has hosted the Erich Lindemann Memorial Lecture Series for many years, and has long made the lecture series part of its curriculum with several members of the College community and faculty serving as speakers.
