Hide Profile

Hans C. Syz was born on August 1, 1894 in Zürich, Switzerland. He completed medical training in Zürich, Munich and Geneva before coming to the United States in 1921 to do clinical work and research in physiological psychology at the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic at Johns Hopkins University. In 1923 he began to participate in the 'living laboratory' organized by Trigant Burrow. In 1927 he became secretary of the newly-founded Lifwynn Foundation for Laboratory Research in Analytic and Social Psychiatry in Westport, Connecticut. Syz served as an officer of the foundation for sixty-four years, and in 1951 succeeded Burrow as its president. Syz assembled a comprehensive collection of 18th-century European porcelain which he donated to the Smithsonian Institution in 1964. He died on May 29, 1991, in Greens Farms, Connecticut.
