You can't live on one article. So will you please sit down and do two things for me? First work on a good case with all the details that you can give me, with all the dreams that you can get, something on the style of 'The Psychoanalysis of a Sodomist' which you published years ago in the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry.... Additionally I want you to write a Guest Editorial...."

He served as Professor and Head of Psychiatry at Howard University College of Medicine from 1921 to 1941. He was critical of the treatment of criminals by law and by medicine.
