Dr. Morton Herskowitz 100


Morton Herskowitz 100

On May 26, 2018 we celebrated Dr. Herskowitz’s 100th birthday. The celebration was held at his daughter, Robin’s home in the suburbs of Philadelphia. A few weeks before to his 100th birthday Dr. Herskowitz officially stopped his practice of psychiatry and psychiatric orgone therapy and announced his retirement. Family members, friends, students, ex-patients and IOS members were among the attendees. Robin gave a speech about her father, and his grandson spoke about Dr. Herskowitz’s effect on his life. Dr. Herskowitz himself gave a short speech as well. He expressed his gratification of being a bridge between Reich and the next generation of students and physicians and passing on Reich’s teachings to them. Dr. Herskowitz also talked about how he became a student of Reich. He discussed some of his memories with Reich and recalled the way he first got to know Dr. Reich. He learned about Reich through his fiancé’s father who asked him if he had read Reich’s book “Sexual Revolution”. His future father in law told him that he felt Reich was brilliant. To impress his future father in law Dr. Herskowitz read the book and since he was a psychiatry resident he chose Dr. Reich as his analyst. He made an appointment to see him in Forest Hill, New York. He then asked some of his mentors and supervisors in the hospital what they knew about Reich. A few of the doctors that he spoke to told Dr. Herskowitz that Reich had become psychotic and was locked up in some type of chronic psychiatric asylum. Dr. Herskowitz stated that he was surprised, and told them that he had just made an appointment with Dr. Reich in Forest Hills! Dr. Herskowitz concluded that misinformation and gossip affected the profession and distorted the truth.

At the end of the celebration, Dr. Herskowitz was presented with a letter from James F. Kenney, the mayor of Philadelphia, congratulating him for his 100th birthday and commending his remarkable achievements.

The following is the letter:

The party was a great success. We socialized with one another, and recognized Dr. Herskowitz’s work and his teachings and expressed our gratitude towards him.

Report on International Conference on Orgonomy, October 4 – 6, Rome, Italy


The Italian Association of Orgonomy hosted the International Conference on Orgonomy in Rome last month, October 4-6. Several international speakers were invited, including four IOS members: Conny Huthsteiner, M.D. Philip Bennett, PhD. Hugh Brenner, FPNP. and Stephan Simonian, M.D. The conference was launched with Dr. Morton Herskowitz’s videotaped keynote address. Herskowitz, who is now 95 and resides and practices in Philadelphia, is the sole surviving student of Wilhelm Reich. The videotaped address, produced by Huchsteiner, was greeted by a lengthy applause from the audience.

Other speakers included James DeMeo, Peter Robbins, Armando Vecchietti, Roberto Maglione, Peter Jones, Tina Lindermann, Wendy Kohli, Jorgos Kavouroas, and Reneta Reich Moise. During one of her presentations, Ms. Reich Moise, Wilhelm Reich’s granddaughter, spoke about her life as well as her family history. Emotionally touching and historically interesting, her talk was well-received as were the presentations by all IOS members.

Organizers of the conference included Francisco Zito as well as Armando Vecchietti, Roberto Maglione, and Bruno Franchi, all members of the Italian Association of Orgonomy.
