An Institute Legacy: Herbert Gaskill, M.D.

Recruited to chair the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado in 1952, Dr. Gaskill envisioned a psychoanalytic institute in Denver. Just a year later, his intelligence and energy were devoted to building a first-rate department of psychiatry with energies equally divided in clinical and research for the ultimate establishment of an Institute for Psychoanalysis. He recruited experienced analysts to join him to teach in the Department and to provide supervision and therapy. The Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis in was established in 1969.

Dr. Gaskill started a second term as director, at the age of 73, to lead the Institute out of an organizational impasse created by an illusory search for perfection. His honesty, integrity, genuine humility were an inspiration to everyone.

Dr. Gaskill’s generosity, modesty, strength, and endless questioning were a model for the psychoanalytically-informed life.
