Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with Anthony Pollock, M.D.
Dr. Pollock graduated from high school at 15 and finished medical school by age 21. From early age he had a type of arthritis that affected his life significantly and was one of the reasons he gravitated to psychiatry. After completing psychiatric training in Colorado and working for a few years in Indiana, he returned to Minneapolis in 1955 and was a community psychiatrist from then on. This interview contains much of Dr. Pollock's philosophy, but the story of his eventual practice at the Hennepin County Medical Center and the Hennepin County Mental Health Center is also included. Towards the end he describes some personal thoughts about what happens in psychotherapy. He also describes retiring because of metastatic prostate cancer.
