Psychodynamics and the Allergic Patient

Minneapolis and St. Paul: The Bruce Publishing Company, 1948.

Price: $500.00

Hardcover. First edition. 12mo. 81pp. Stamp and signature of a noted American psychologist and anthropologist on the front fly else fine in fine dustwrapper. An official publication of the American College of Allergists, the book includes a panel discussion with ten other allergists.

Abramson was an allergist best known for his connection to the secret CIA organization MK-Ultra, which aided by a grant from the Geschickter Fund for Medical Research, a rather secretive organization that, in 1977, *The New York Times* reported had been used by the CIA as a conduit for distributing funds to medical researchers mostly for experimentation with LSD-25. Abramson gained some level of notoriety for being the physician associated with the mysterious death of Frank Olson, the scientist who fell from a hotel window under mysterious circumstances, after earlier being dosed with LSD without his permission. Netflix produced a six-part docudrama on the incident, called *Wormwood*, in 2017, with Bob Balaban as Abramson. This title is very uncommon in jacket.
