Biographical/Historical Note

Harry Aron Wilmer II was born in 1917 and earned his BA, MB and Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota, and later trained in psychiatry at the Mayo clinic. Wilmer began his career as a Freudian analyst but adopted a Jungian approach after receiving Jungian analyst training in Zurich.

In 1955 Wilmer was drafted into the U.S. Navy and served at the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital in Oakland, California where he oversaw the care of Naval and Marine Corps patients with a variety of mental disorders. While serving at Oak Knoll, Wilmer developed his approach to group therapy, and integrated video technology into his practice. His observations about group interaction eventually led to his book Social Psychiatry in Action, later developed into the 1961 docudrama People Need People, hosted by Fred Astaire.

Dr. Wilmer continued his group therapy work in the late 1960's through the University of California at San Francisco, eventually establishing the Youth Drug Ward at the Langely Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute. The Youth drug ward served young hippies from the Haight-Ashbury district who had experienced adverse affects from drug use. The therapy included "creativity seminars" which featured such artists as Joan Baez and Rod Steiger. Also during the 1960s, Wilmer worked extensively with inmates from the San Quentin prison and their families.

In 1969 Dr. Wilmer moved to Texas and became professor of Psychiatry at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio. While there he provided therapy at a Veterans Hospital for Vietnam War veterans who were suffering from PTSD. He later expanded his practice to those affected by AIDS.

Dr. Wilmer retired from psychiatry in 1980 and the same year established the Institute for the Humanities at Salado, where he hosted artists, scholars and other speakers to conduct workshops and give lectures. Dr. Wilmer was a prolific writer with such titles to his name as Practical Jung: Nuts and Bolts of Jungian Psychotherapy, Closeness in Personal and Professional Relationships, How Dreams Help and many more.
