The History of Spring Journal
Spring is the oldest Jungian journal in the world. It was started in 1941 by the Analytical Psychology Club of New York and was edited by Jane Pratt until 1969. With the 1970 issue, James Hillman became its editor and moved the journal and its publication to Zurich, Switzerland. When Hillman became the Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of Dallas in 1978, he transferred the editing and publishing of Spring there. It was edited in Dallas, Texas, until 1987. In 1988, Spring moved to Connecticut. James Hillman retired as Publisher and Senior Editor of the journal in 1997. Spring was published by Nancy Cater, Ph.D, J.D, and Jay Livernois from 1997 until 2003. Nancy Cater is now the owner, publisher and editor of Spring, which is a Louisiana corporation located in New Orleans.
Spring Journal is published with the support of Pacifica Graduate Institute. Spring Journal and Pacifica Graduate Institute are dedicated to cultivating and harvesting the gifts of the human imagination so that these insights may be brought to bear upon the personal, cultural and planetary concerns of our time. It is our aim to foster research and publication in psychology, mythology, the arts, and religion following within the tradition of the depth psychology of C. G. Jung.
