Karl Stern Archives

Karl Stern was a prominent Montreal psychiatrist in the middle of the last century whose books, including Pillar of Fire and Flight From Woman, contained important reflections on psychology, religion and culture that drew on the traditions of Judaism, Catholicism and psychoanalysis. In addition, he maintained a rich correspondence with figures as profound and diverse as Freud, Jung, C.S. Lewis, Reinhold Niebuhr and Dorothy Day. On October 10, 2014 a dedication ceremony was held in the Simon Silverman Center where the archives will be housed.
