Dr. Harrington V. Irgham was the chief psychiatrist in the Student Health service of UCLA. He is also the author of The Process of Psychotherapy published by McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York 1954. He was often quoted in newspapers during the 1950s through 70s. A few of the excerpts are below: He was quoted in the Daily Review in Hayward California on January 13th 1956 as saying "What began as an experimental project in group psychotherapy - in essence a bull session with subtle staff guidance - has now emerged as a full-time program in the Student Health Service." and "The program has been particularly helpful to those with sex problems and troublesome parental relationships and for chronic exam cheaters. We have also been able to help those with emotionally based physical disorders such as certain types of headaches and upset stomachs." There is also a reference in the Daily News in Los Angeles on Tuesday December 7th 1954 that Dr. Harrington V. Ingham, while assistant clinical professor of psychiatry and neuropsychiatrist of the Student Health Center, was the speaker at the Inter Fraternity Council Mothers' Club of UCLA. On Monday August 7th 1950 in The Cumberland News (Cumberland, Maryland) he was asked "Do quarreling parents make children neurotic?". His answer: Yes, writes Dr. Harrington V. Ingham in the American Journal of Psychiatry. A comparative study of psychoneurotic and mentally healthy students at the University of California, Los Angeles, showed that family quarrels and the mental illness of a member of the household are important factors in creating neuroses, while most other supposed causes - e.g., the loss of a parent - appear minor. Parents who remain together "for their children's sake" but cannot stop quarreling would do less harm if they separated. In The Los Angeles Times on Sunday December 5th 1971 he was referenced in an article about racing in the desert which was apparently a big past time. "Dr. Harrington V. Ingham, a psychiatrist at the UCLA Medical Center, sees racing as "a valuable anxiety outlet, expressing the elemental desire for excitement, somewhat like the desire to fight big animals."

Doctor Lauds Bull Sessions

The following appeared in the Corpus Christi Times on January 5th 1956: Los Angeles (AP) - A UCLA psychiatrist says "bull sessions" are effective in handling serious student emotional problems. Dr. Harrington V. Ingham, chief psychiatrist at the student health service, said yesterday: "What began as an experimental project in group psychotherapy - in essence a bull session with subtle staff guidance - has now emerged as a full-time program in the Student Health Service." He said the program has been particularly helpful to those with sex problems, troublesome parental relationships and even to chronic exam cheaters. The sessions enable members to relieve tensions by letting off steam during discussions, he said. Staff members are given insight into student emotional problems. Dr. Ingham added the individual is made aware that his problem is not unique and is capable of solution.

1914 - 1995 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Harrington's lifetime.

In 1914, in the year that Harrington v Ingham was born, in August, the world's first red and green traffic lights were installed at the corner of East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland Ohio. The electric traffic light had been invented by a policeman in Salt Lake City Utah in 1912.

In 1931, by the time he was 17 years old, on May 1st, the Empire State Building opened in New York City. At 1,454 feet (including the roof and antenna), it was the tallest building in the world until the World Trade Center's North Tower was built in 1970. (It is now the 34th tallest.) Opening at the beginning of the Great Depression, most of the offices in the Empire State Building remained unoccupied for years and the observation deck was an equal source of revenue and kept the building profitable.

In 1940, at the age of 26 years old, Harrington was alive when on November 5th, President Franklin Roosevelt was elected to a third term, defeating Wendell Willkie of Indiana (a corporate lawyer). Roosevelt running for a third term was controversial. But the U.S. was emerging from the Great Recession and he promised that he would not involve the country in any foreign war (which of course changed when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor). Roosevelt defeated Willkie in the popular vote by 54.7 to 44.8% and in the Electoral College 449 to 82.

In 1977, when he was 63 years old, on January 21st, President Carter pardoned "draft dodgers" - men who avoided the draft during the Vietnam War. He fulfilled a campaign promise with the pardon. But it only applied to civilian evaders - the estimated 500,000 to 1 million active-duty personnel who went AWOL were not included.

In 1995, in the year of Harrington v Ingham's passing, on October 16th, the Million Man March took place on the National Mall in Washington DC. The March was organized to address "the ills of black communities and call for unity and revitalization of African American communities". An estimated 850,000 people attended.
