In the presence of a distinguished gathering of prominent scholars and scientific figures, the 1930 Goethe Prize, supported by the Frankfurt municipality, was yesterday awarded to Dr. Sigmund Freud, world famous psychoanalyst of Vienna. The award was accepted on Dr. Freud’s behalf by his daughter, Anna Freud, Dr. Freud being unable to attend on account of illness.

Mayor Landman of Frankfurt, in his presentation address, declared that Dr. Freud’s creative genius fructified an entire generation and had spread the fame of German and European science to the furthest parts of the world.
