Administrative Information


Gift of the Dichter family, 2007.

After closing his offices in the Croton-on-Hudson "Castle" in 1982, Dichter placed his library of research studies, publications and other writings with Mercy College, where he taught marketing. However, when Mercy College sought permission in 1990 to microfilm them and have carte blanche to destroy the originals to save space, Dichter repossessed them. He was working with a dealer to sell them to another library but was unable to make satisfactory arrangements before his final illness. These materials, plus Dr. Dichter's remaining business correspondence and notes, were removed to Hagley from Dichter's last residence and office in Cortlandt Manor, N.Y., in 2007.

Existence and Location of Copies

A large portion of the Ernest Dichter papers was digitized by Adam Matthew Digital (AMD) in 2013 and is available to on-site users and database subscribers via the AMD database, American Consumer Culture, 1935-1965 .


Biographical Note

Ernest Dichter, one of the pioneers in consumer motivational research, was born in Vienna on August 14, 1907, the oldest of three children of William and Mathilde Dichter, a family of Polish and Sudeten-German immigrants. His father was a traveling salesman of textiles and sewing accessories. Dichter was obliged to assume the breadwinner role as his father's business and health failed. The Dichters were downwardly mobile and were barely affected by the glittering high culture of pre-World War I Vienna. During and immediately after World War I, the family was severely impoverished as William Dichter was first drawn into the army and then often unable to earn commissions. Ernest Dichter would always recall the poverty and starvation of his formative years and credit it with sharpening his awareness of the pleasures and comforts to be had in even the most basic and essential material goods.

Although he remained poor, Dichter was able attend the University of Vienna where he studied German literature from 1927 to 1929, thanks to a new law that permitted working students to take classes on nights and weekends. In the latter year, he fled to Paris to escape family pressures and enrolled at the Sorbonne, where he continued his literary studies. Here a woman fellow-student, a refugee from the Russian Revolution with whom he had a relationship, turned his interests away from literature towards socialism and psychology.

Because of the Depression, Dichter was forced to return to Vienna in 1930, where he resumed his studies at the University, supporting himself as a tutor and window dresser. He now pursued a doctorate in psychology. His most important mentors were Karl Bühler (1879-1963) and Charlotte Bühler (1893-1974), who taught an anti-Freudian, empirical and developmental psychology and a motivation-based theory of personality. Dichter himself later credited the analytical philosopher Moritz Schlick (1882-1936), under whom he studied epistemology and logic, as having the greater influence and giving him the intellectual tools most essential to his later work. However, it was his statistics teacher, Paul Felix Lazarsfeld (1901-1976), who would later provide the entry to his American career. Dichter also studied the art and psychology of public speaking in a class taught by Esti Freud, the daughter-in-law of Sigmund Freud.

In 1934, the same year his father died, Dichter received his Ph.D. In the following year, Dichter married Hedy Langfelder, a concert pianist, the three events together marking his entrance into the professional class and into adult family life. He worked with developing infants, mentally ill children, offered vocational guidance to adults, and authored a popular syndicated column on practical psychology. He also conducted a private psychoanalytical practice and studied with Wilhelm Stekel (1868-1940) and August Aichhorn (1878-1949), both of whom practiced a more clinical and empirical form of psychoanalysis than Freud. During 1936-37, he also worked at the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Mitarbeiter des Ősterreichischen Wirtschaftspsychologischen Forschungsstelle (Employees Association of the Austrian Economic Psychology Research Center) where Lazarsfeld, who had emigrated to America in 1933, had developed innovative market research that employed psychological depth interviews.

However, Dichter claimed to have been unaware that the Center was a haven for socialist dissidents and what the new right-wing government of Austria considered subversive activities, and he found himself arrested and held for interrogation without warning. Early in 1937, at the same time as the Center was formally shuttered, Dichter and his wife fled to Paris, where he was forced to work at his father's old trade of commission salesman, a setback, but one that forced him to hone his ability to deliver a successful sales pitch and drove home the fact that the product generally does not sell itself.

Dichter esacped Nazi controlled Germany and secured a visa to the U.S. in the spring of 1938. Dichter arrived in New York with a recommendation from Lazarsfeld, who had established himself in the U.S. in 1933 and was busily developing and refining many of the techniques that Dichter himself would later employ, Dichter secured a position with a market research firm within three days and settled into the refugee community in New York City. Unlike many refugee intellectuals and professionals, however, he sought professional help to replace his Viennese accent with an American one.

Within a short time, Dichter began to solicit short-term consulting jobs, the first with Esquire magazine, then for Procter & Gamble's Ivory soap, and then for Chrysler's new Plymouth line of low-priced cars, all incidentally, products that had a high psycho-sexual or erotic component to their consumer appeal. Within eighteen months of his arrival, Dichter had been noticed by Time magazine, and these first successes led to the post of director of psychological research with the influential advertising agency J. Stirling Getchell, Inc. After Getchell died, Dichter accepted an offer from Frank Stanton of the Columbia Broadcasting System, where Lazarsfeld was doing pioneering work on audience response. Stanton, Lazarsfeld, and their teams aired programs for test audiences and used a Program Analyzer to accurately measure fluctuating listener attention, thereby discovering what parts of the program people liked most. Where Lazarsfeld's research was both rigorously quantitative and qualitative, Dichter's approach was almost entirely qualitative. Where Lazarsfeld favored collaboration and team effort, Dichter worked on the basis of personal insight and in the role of an individual expert.

Naturally independent and entrepreneurial, Dichter chafed under the working conditions within a large organization like CBS, and in 1946 established his own consulting firm, which he incorporated as the Institute for Research in Mass Motivations in 1952. He was soon commanding fees of $500 a day. He moved his office from New York to a small farm in Montrose in 1953, and about a year later, to a 26-room mansion on a hill top overlooking the river in Croton-on-Hudson about thirty miles north of Manhattan. It 1955, it was restyled the Institute for Motivational Research, Inc., and it was under this title that the Dichter organization was at its most productive.

The 1950s were the heyday of the type of motivational research that Dichter practiced. Whether Dichter originated M.R. or was merely its most important and aggressive practitioner is still debated. He clearly benefited from his place in the New York market and from his forceful, charismatic personality. Dichter was capable of using a barrage of controversial, speculative and Freudian assertions (a watered-down Freudianism was everywhere permeating contemporary American culture) and a talent for what would later become known as "thinking outside the box" to command the attention of manufacturers and their advertising agencies.

Dichter followed a consistent operating procedure for most of his career. He came to employ a staff of as many as sixty or seventy people, about a third of which were social scientists, along with a pool of as many as 2,000 part-time interviewers scattered around the country who worked with carefully constructed groups of test subjects drawn from the target population. Dichter also maintained a smaller and more permanent pool of families from the New York-Westchester County area from whom he could select test subjects for more intensive study at his offices.

Dichter usually began with a mailed proposal calling attention to some supposed problem faced by a prospective client and describing his own past successes. A substantial number failed to elicit a response. When one did, Dichter attended an initial meeting to deliver his well-honed pitch like any other salesman. If successful, either the manufacturer, its advertising agency, or both, would pay $20,000-60,000 for a full-fledged study whose end product might run to hundreds of pages. Dichter's staff would assemble an appropriate sample of test subjects and use them to investigate Dichter's hypotheses and assertions. With some companies, Dichter was able to secure follow-up studies and establish a long-term working relationship. He is perhaps best known for the groundwork that lead to the "put a tiger in your tank" slogan for Exxon Corporation and the "bet you can't eat just one" advertising campaign of Frito-Lay, as well as facilitating the successful introduction of the Barbie doll.

Dichter used a wide variety of methods, including standard personality assessment and perception tests, anthropological observations, and psychodrama. Test subjects and families assembled in Dichter's "Living Laboratory," a facsimile of an ordinary suburban family room, where they watched television commercials or interacted with actual products, while tape recorders rolled and hidden cameras captured changes in body language. However, the core of Dichter's approach was the use of the in-depth interview. He and his staff used the whole battery of psychiatric techniques to elicit self-exploration and candid responses from his subjects that teased out their unconscious (often sexualized) motivations and emotional engagements with the whole range of consumer goods, with commercials and advertisements, and, when occasionally promoting service agencies or political candidates, with other aspects of daily life. Dichter claimed not only to reveal the consumers innermost secrets and taboos, but also the "soul of the product," the deeper meanings and taboos surrounding it.

As someone who had experienced privation, Dichter understood how material goods contributed to physical and psychological well-being and brought some measure of satisfaction and fulfillment even to the relatively poor. He wrote paeans to the simple and deep delights offered by bathing or eating soup or feeling the textures of different types of cloth. He had witnessed the growth of the middle classes through increasing income and leisure time and realized that the newly-prosperous and upwardly mobile American relied on advertising and other mass media rather than tradition for cues to appropriate behavior and possessions. He also saw how material abundance complicated the age-old issue of status markers, allowing for all sorts of associations and "personal statements" between the old dichotomy of excess for the rich few and meagerness for everyone else. Hence, for Dichter, consumption, properly channeled, became a form of therapy and self-realization. Goods chosen to meet one's inner needs and social responsibilities represented an advance over items chosen simply as external status markers to assert one's superiority. Mass communication, again properly channeled and explained, became the structural framework of democratic society. Products designed and sold in line with people's deepest, albeit irrational, internal needs would constitute realistic and realizable small steps towards a better life, if not the Good Life. Such steps, Dichter believed, would allay the kind of mass public anxieties that had been exploited by Hitler and other totalitarians of left and right.

At the same time, Dichter seems to have had a sense of mission to bring a more open, Continental sexuality to repressed, puritanical America and to make American society more open to immigrants and outsiders. In this, he was largely riding on underlying tectonic shifts that had been going on for years and that had accelerated during the social disruptions of World War II. On the other hand, he seems to have believed that American politics, and for that matter advertising, had gone too far in the direction of the real equality of the sexes. Dichter was a believer in gender complementarity, not equality, which implied the existence of subconscious gendered consumer preferences that advertisers ignored at their peril. In an early study he expatiated on "the gender of rice," rice being by culture, if not by nature, "feminine," while potatoes, say, were perceived as "masculine." A corollary was that advertisers must avoid sexual ambiguity or confusion in their ads, pitching a "masculine" product in a "feminine" way or vice versa, and especially avoiding the suggestion that a product was, in today's parlance, "too gay," an issue that was, in contrast to the frankness about bodily functions, usually approached obliquely in the 1950s and 60s.

Even at his peak, Dichter had opponents. Some maintained that his work was insufficiently quantitative and was therefore "unscientific," and in fact, Dichter seems to have been forced to include more quantitative analysis later on simply to keep up with disciplinary trends. Others thought Dichter was little more that a gifted advertising copywriter who simply wrapped his creative insights in psychological garb, or a pitchman who could appeal over the heads of experts to bosses who found his presentation of simple truisms psychologically profound.

A more comprehensive attack was launched by Vance Packard in his 1957 book The Hidden Persuaders, who arraigned Dichter as "the most famed" practitioner of techniques that promoted mass consumption and self-indulgence and manipulated consumers into buying things they never wanted or needed. Ironically, Packard's attack served as the perfect endorsement for potential clients, increasing Dichter's business and his stature. Dichter himself responded with a presentation of his own views in Strategy of Desire in 1960. Whatever one thinks of Dichter's own beliefs, his report interviews show his consumer subjects to be critical and skeptical, often brutally so, and capable of distinguishing what worked for them from advertising hype.

The attack by Betty Friedan in The Feminine Mystique in 1963 was less easily deflected. Dichter's quasi-Freudian psychology, adherence to the notion of separate spheres, and personal view of women as male help-meets could not be reconciled with any version of feminism. Dichter had long divided female consumers into three classes. The "career woman," even if lacking an actual career, might dream of one and felt bored and frustrated by housework. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the "pure housewife" reveled in traditional domestic duties. As a result, neither was likely to be a receptive consumer of household goods, the first being indifferent and the second committed to the doctrine of "do it yourself." Dichter favored (or perhaps created) the happy medium of the "balanced woman," who enjoyed housekeeping, yet engaged in or at least thought about some activities outside the domestic circle. The "balanced woman" was the perfect mark for advertisers, because they could entice her to try some supposedly labor-saving product that would allegedly increase her free time, while at the same time playing on her guilt at not being a more dedicated homemaker and her desire to meld domesticity and creativity. So in a famous study for General Mills, Dichter advised them to remove the powdered eggs and milk from Bisquick, a biscuit or cake mix which needed only water, on the grounds that it eliminated the last bit of creativity in cooking. The "balanced woman" could be won over by being made an active (but not too active) participant through adding the real eggs and milk herself.

On the crest of his American successes, Dichter took his approach back to Europe. Here he encountered varying blends of resistance and acceptance depending upon a given country's general stance on the larger issues of "Americanization." Where cultural resistance was highest, in Paris (1958) and Rome (1959), Dichter's branch offices were small and short-lived, although he continued to do some work for French clients out of New York.

In Britain, Dichter encountered a society numbed by nearly three decades of Depression privation and war rationing, where American abundance still generated mixed reactions of awe and resentment. Traditional British society was hostile to Dichter at a number of levels. Britain's long traditions of empiricism and analytical philosophy ensured that academics and scientists rejected Dichter's qualitative methods and watered-down Freudianism out of hand. Its deeply-ingrained class system and notions of class solidarity that stifled anything that smacked of "putting on airs" or grabbing more than one's share seemed to offer only barren ground for Dichter's ideas of optimism and mobility. Dichter thought the British even more puritanical than the Americans, yet within a few years after Dichter opened his London office in 1958, Britain's younger generation was developing its own brands of hedonism and fashion-sense and exporting them to the rest of the world. Even Dichter's "balanced woman" was a step forward in the British case, as a 1965 study of women's sexuality for Nova, a new women's magazine, showed.

In the end, however, Dichter's most reliable British clients were vendors of cigarettes and chocolates. For whatever cultural reasons, Dichter continued to find a more receptive audience in the German-speaking Europe from which he had come. The branch offices in Zurich, his main European base (1968), and Frankfurt (1970) generated an increasing share of Dichter's business, and in fact survived him. Dichter developed some of his strongest relationships with German and Swiss firms.

By the 1960s, a resurgent feminism was but one of Dichter's problems. The early success stories could not be repeated indefinitely. Dichter's multi-volume reports could be little more than a post-mortem for the Edsel. Often as not, Dichter was called in as part of a usually unsuccessful drive to revive flagging sales of products that were losing their appeal or regional brands that eventually would succumb to competition from national chains. The academic study of consumer behavior was moving into business schools and becoming more quantitative and theoretical. Advertising thrived on novelty, and Freudianism was becoming old. Newer advertising agencies increasingly relied on humor and irony, and it became clear that if people could remember the style of your ad, your jingle, catchphrase or mascot for whatever reason, you didn't have to punch their Freudian subconscious buttons.

Beginning in the early 1960s, Dichter began responding to these challenges more by changing the scope of his work than by altering his own ideologies. He solicited more work from non-profits, governments and political candidates, shifted the emphasis from the product to the effectiveness of the packaging, and used his motivational techniques to suggest ways to improve the morale of employees, particularly local managers, salespeople, dealers, and commission agents. He added more appendices with graphs to make his work more quantitative.

These unfavorable trends accelerated in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Dichter had long preached against American Puritanism, but when the barriers began collapsing, it is likely that he was not as pleased with the result as he might have once thought. The baby boomer kids who had sat sullen or fidgety in his "Living Laboratory" while he poked and prodded their psyches in the 1950s were now vowing not to trust anyone over thirty. While many vendors quickly figured out ways to cultivate the Youth Market, Dichter was now not merely over thirty, he was over sixty. While he could observe the Counterculture from outside as a social scientist and profess to see some of his own ideas and ideals there, to the hippie generation he could only be a parent and not a prophet. His work on the "peacock revolution" in men's dress, however perceptive, was used by DuPont to market the garish polyester fabrics and clothing that have since become a cliché of the 1970s.

To someone who had promised to ameliorate societal anxieties and psychological discontents in the pursuit of greater harmony and personal growth, the era's sometimes violent confrontations over stark racial, generational, class, gender, and lifestyle divides was genuinely disturbing. By his own accounts, Dichter saw the polarizations of the late 1960s as a replay of what had happened in Germany in the early 1930s. Spiro Agnew-style conservatism, in particular, seemed to him to presage a second coming of the Brown Shirts. As in the 1930s, Dichter seriously considered whether it might be time to escape by emigrating before it was too late. Matters came to a head in 1970, when Dichter suffered a heart attack during a confrontational speaking encounter with a Black militant. Nonetheless, with typical optimism, he used his forced recuperation to make suggestions for improving amenities for patients in hospitals.

This physical setback further prompted Dichter to rearrange his affairs. In March 1971, he sold his companies to Lehigh Valley Industries, Inc., a minor industrial conglomerate that had begun life as an anthracite coal company, but they jettisoned the business as unprofitable in 1973, keeping only a subsidiary that promoted coupon sales. Dichter repurchased the rest. His firms went through several changes of name, although it is unclear if these were merely cosmetic or represented attempts to recapitalize or reorganize.

At the same time, of course, the cataclysms that Dichter had feared did not happen, and as the 1970s turned into the "me decade," he enjoyed a new popularity in a cultural landscape teeming with rival gurus and self-help artists. As he gradually lost favor with many American mass marketers, he gained greater exposure as a pop psychologist. He ran seminars, wrote personality tests for popular magazines such as Cosmopolitan, and gave interviews (and a temporary sheen of respectability) to Penthouse and the supermarket tabloids. On the more serious side, Dichter developed an interest in futurology and a relationship with the nearby Hudson Institute founded by Herman Kahn. He also taught courses in marketing at Mercy College, originally a Catholic junior college in Dobbs Ferry that was vigorously transforming itself into an institution for adult students and continuing education.

By now, Dichter was at the normal age for retirement. He had tried to hand down his businesses to his only son, Thomas W. Dichter, making him the titular president of the Institute for a time in the 1970s, but he opted for an independent career as an anthropologist and expert on Third World development. Although Ernest Dichter continued working, age and the economic dislocations of the early 1980s forced him to curtail his activities. He sold the Croton-on-Hudson "Castle" at the end of 1981 and moved to more economical quarters in nearby Cortlandt Manor. The successful offices in Zurich and Frankfurt were sold to their local staffs who retained the Dichter name, and the London operation had already been sold to William Schlackman, a former employee who was becoming Britain's leading market researcher.

Dichter turned more and more to writing, obtained a faculty position at Nova University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and sought to convert his business into an academic institute, housed either in Florida or Israel. He took commissions from strange bedfellows, including Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network, for whom he analyzed viewer reactions to American television re-runs beamed into northern Israel and occupied southern Lebanon. With much of his written output now divorced from selling particular products, Dichter proved able to re-run or syndicate his own message to new audiences. As late as 1989 he was hired to conduct the first consumer motivation studies in the Soviet Union. Dichter disseminated his ideas in seventeen books published over his lifetime, as well as in his Institute's newsletters and in countless speeches and public appearances.

Ernest Dichter died of heart failure in the Hudson Valley Hospital Center near Peekskill, N.Y., on November 21, 1991. His work is perpetuated by Dichter Research AG, successor to the old Zurich office, and the Ernest Dichter Institut. Motiv-, Marketing- Kommunikationsforschung GmbH & Co. KG in Frankfurt. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Dichter's work has been rediscovered by a new generation of historians of consumer culture.

Note: The above essay draws heavily upon Daniel Horowitz's "The Birth of a Salesman: Ernest Dichter and the Objects of Desire," which is perhaps the fullest account of Dichter's life and work thus far, and also upon Dichter's own letters and manuscripts.


Scope and Content

This collection consists of the business records of Ernest Dichter and the several consulting firms through which he operated fully document his role as a pioneer of motivational research, from the beginnings of his career in the United States until a few months before his death. They lay out the evolution of his pyschological thought, his methods of soliciting business and getting maximum exposure for himself and his accomplishments​, his later role as a mentor and teacher, and, most importantly, the access he gained into the psyche of thousands of ordinary consumers over five decades and on five continents. However, Dichter was forced to cull his records in moving to smaller offices in the 1980s, so that much of his early correspondence, recordings, and other raw data have been lost.



The Ernest Dichter papers were arranged in six series, which more or less reflect Dr. Dichter's own arrangement. However, researchers should be aware that Dr. Dichter kept multiple copies of his writings and associated materials in several different filing systems, including freestanding items on library shelves, papers in loose-leaf binders, and several runs of filing cabinets. Versions of the same document may typically exist in two or more series so researchers are advised to check all parts of the finding aid. The loose-leaf binders themselves have been destroyed as a conservation measure and all materials transferred to file folders and record cartons. In the process, obvious duplication, including the many copies of his writings that Dr. Dichter held as inventory for sale, has been eliminated. Dichter's numbering systems and indexes have been preserved.

B. Newsletters
Scope and Content
During his career, Dr. Dichter published four principal serials to disseminate his ideas. The most important was Motivations, begun in 1956. This was the period when Dichter was near the height of his influence and his ideas were considered new and exciting. Through Motivations, Dichter broadcast some of the ideas and results of his private client studies. Motivations is an interesting window into American middle class culture in the mid-fifties, and contains a number of photographs of domestic life that show the clutter and indifference to style that characterized most homes of that period, in contrast to the abundant consumer durables and style-consciousness in dress and belongings that lay over the horizon. It is not clear exactly when Dichter ceased publishing Motivations, as his surviving file copies end in the middle of 1957. However, some later copies placed among Dichter's file of "Reprints," indicates that publication continued until at least the fall of 1958.
Dichter began publishing his first newsletter on October 13, 1953. In contrast to Motivations, his Memo from the Desk of Dr. Ernest Dichter began as a simple typed letter. However, it soon moved to offset printing and acquired illustrations. Memo is particularly interesting because it is one of the few places in which Dichter described and illustrated the practical workings of his Institute and his research methods. It contains photos of tests underway and of the staff at work, even showing off their new IBM punch card sorter to prove that their operation is up-to-date. Memo also includes Dichter's musings on current events, reports on his latest studies and doings, and the opening of branch offices abroad.
In its last issue in 1964, Memo reverted to a typed format. The following year, Dichter replaced it with Findings, an un-illustrated four-page offset newsletter, which he continued for nearly the rest of his active career, ending the run in June 1986. As its title indicates, Findings mixes information gleaned from the client studies with observations on current events against a constant background of Dichter's main intellectual themes. He also used this newsletter to publicize his own movements and speaking engagements, but these is little on the Institute's inner workings as found in Memo. Findings is therefore most useful as a record of the evolution or persistence of basic ideas in Dichter's thought and of his reactions to the sea changes in American social and political life over those two decades. Information relating to subscriptions and billings for Findings from the 1970s and 80s may be found in the "Files on Publications" series in Subgroup F, Correspondence.
The Human Factor, published between 1976 and 1987 by the Economic Press, Inc., is a pocket-sized folder that contains a single, focused homily or recommendation to managers on the subject of self-motivation or employee motivation. It reflects the growing importance of this sort of work in Dichter's later career, as opposed to the lengthy consumer motivation studies and marketing tips. In 1987, Dichter changed the title to Manager/Motivator and probably ceased active involvement. Manager/Motivator continued to be issued as "ideas for inspiring people by Dr. Ernest Dichter" well after his death, probably by drawing upon or recycling earlier writings. The last known issue is No. 614 from 1998.

C. Reprints
The series is arranged according to the original numbers assigned to them by Dr. Dichter, although this is not strictly chronological. Some of the earliest writings, including an article on commercial psychology that Dichter wrote in 1937 while still in France, are in the last box of the series. There are several indexes created by Dr. Dichter to manage sales of the reprints, which are placed at the beginning of the series.
Scope and Content
Consists of offprints of journal articles or copies and clippings of magazines and newspapers. During his practice, Dichter maintained a file of these for sale or distribution to clients, of which a maximum of three copies has been retained. Dichter published in a very wide variety of venues, from the Harvard Business Review and sociological journals, through obscure trade and professional journals, to TV Guide, Cosmopolitan, Penthouse, and the National Enquirer. Some articles are derived directly from the research studies.
Individual publications of some length or note have also been cataloged as separate items on Hagley's on line public catalog (OPAC).

D. Publications by Others
Scope and Content
Consists of publications that Dr. Dichter collected from a variety of outside sources. Most come from his later years and seem to have been collected for comparative reference or for potential collaboration and outsourcing of work. Presumably, Dichter destroyed similar materials from his earlier years.

III. Speeches, Quizzes & Seminars
10 linear feet
Scope and Content
Consists of the texts of speeches, pop-psychology personality quizzes, and agendas and notes for seminars, some of which may also exist in published form.
The speeches follow the trajectory of Dichter's career and generally reflect the findings and ideas one finds in the motivational studies and published writings of a given year. During the 1950s and 1960s, when the Institute was at its height, many of the speeches are those of Dichter's vice presidents and other subordinates, including Ernest Angel, Irving Gilman, John Kellogg, John Kishler, Tibor Koves, John Rimberg, and William Schlackman. In the later years, a high percentage of the speeches were delivered in German before European audiences, although English translations are often provided. In many cases the speeches exist in several drafts, sometimes with accompanying letters and notes. Dichter recycled many of the same ideas and often entire speeches for different audiences at different times. There is also some overlap between the speeches and the "Reprints," which is often noted by Dr. Dichter in the front page margins.
Even before emigrating, Dr. Dichter had written psychological personality tests and quizzes for popular magazines, a practice he continued throughout his career. Many were for women's magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Family Circle and Elle, and Dichter's output logically increased in the "Me Decade" of the 1970s. In the 1980s, Dichter began numbering his quizzes as a continuation of his "Speeches" series, using Nos. 1157-1170. However, the bulk remained organized alphabetically. The earliest quiz dates from 1944 and the latest from 1985.
Dr. Dichter also conducted seminars, especially in the later phases of his career. Sometimes, as in the seminars for Expressen, a Swedish newspaper, or the "Teller-Seller" seminars for motivating bank tellers, they were part of a larger motivational study. Others were offered commercially, and still others as university courses. The "Seminars" series is somewhat mixed. For some seminars, there are only publicity materials and flyers.
For others, such as Dichter's standard creativity and motivation seminars and his "Top Man Tests" for managers, there are elaborate notes and tests for organizing each session. For those that were offered as university courses, such as the seminar given at the Polytechnic Institute of New York, there are copies of student papers.
Dr. Dichter spent a great deal of time as a public speaker presenting his findings and ideas in a wide variety of venues. His first preserved speech dates from October 15, 1943, when he described his method of depth interviews to a meeting of the Market Research Council, but his active career as a public lecturer did not begin until 1951. The last preserved speech dates from 1987. Dichter kept a stock of his speech texts for sale or distribution and numbered them from 601 to 1156. This order has been preserved.

IV. Publicity
4.5 linear feet
Scope and Content
Consists of Dichter's press releases and a file of articles and clippings which he designated as "Publicity". There is some overlap with the "Reprints" series of publications, but these articles for the most part publicize Dr. Dichter, the man and his work, rather than being formal statements of his findings and ideas. The two series thus document how Dichter sought to promote himself and his thought, and how and how much of himself he revealed to the general public at different times. Dichter's own formal press releases date from the 1940s through 1964. A lone survivor from 1975 indicates that he continued this process, but the post-1964 releases have been lost. The "Publicity" files are primarily from the 1960s and 1970s, a period in which Dichter was obliged to change with the times. A substantial portion of the "Publicity" files are in German, with smaller quantities in French and Spanish. The file on Russian publications contains a tamed-down English translation of a Soviet denunciation of Dichter published in Noyoye Vremya (New Times).

V. Writings & Drafts
Scope and Content
Consists of multiple drafts of some of Dichter's principal books and other writings. It also contains what Dichter referred to as his "Subject Files," which are copies of his lesser writings and parts of the studies arranged by subject for ready reference.
A. Drafts of Writings
25 linear feet
Scope and Content
This series consists of Dr. Dichter's rough writings and drafts, part of which were originally kept in a series of three-ring binders. There is some overlap with other series of Dr. Dichter's writings. Dichter kept multiple drafts of his various works, often with different annotations. He also recycled parts of one work into another and kept drafts of each of the stages of evolution of his books, often under different working titles. Other drafts were simply fragments without precise title information. As a consequence, all of the drafts that could not be identified as obvious exact copies have been preserved and arranged alphabetically. The series documents how Dichter refined his presentations and how he reused particular insights and illustrative examples in multiple works.

B. Autobiographical Writings
Scope and Content
Of greater interest are Dichter's autobiographical writings in English and German. There is also a typed diary from the years 1942 to 1944 which provides the only available window into Dichter's private thoughts during his first years in America, when his career was still in flux and he sought to establish himself in New York.
161 Autobiography
161 "Autobiography of a Hidden Persuader,"
161 Biographical sketches
161 Diary, 1942-1944
C. Subject Files
Scope and Content
Consists of samples of Dichter's writings and notes arranged by subject rather than chronologically or by project or client. This file presumably allowed Dichter and the Institute's staff to access quickly all of Dichter's more important thoughts on a particular topic. Speeches, drafts, and proposals for studies are all double-filed as part of the "Subject Files". As might be expected, the "Subject Files" cover the heyday of the Institute from 1943 to the mid 1970s and contain some of Dichter's best early writings. The text of a telephone interview with the Wall Street Journal in the wake of the Robert Kennedy assassination captures Dichter's reactions, not only to the assassinations, but also the student upheavals of 1968, and shows him having second thoughts about his earlier pronouncements about violence on television. Files from the 1970s show an early interest in solar energy, both from the purely technical side and in visionaries like Paolo Soleri and his Arcosanti community.
