Newsletter for the Friends of the Wilhelm Reich Museum
1977 to present
Friends of the Wilhelm Reich Museum began in 1977 as a support organization to sustain
the development of Orgonon as the scientific and educational center envisioned by Reich.
From then on, membership in the Friends became the most popular way for those influenced
and moved by Reich’s legacy to contribute to the preservation and dissemination of
this legacy. And the Friends’ Newsletter quickly became the principal communications
tool for promoting the activities of The Wilhelm Reich Museum and The Wilhelm
Reich Infant Trust—i.e. infrastructure and property improvements, exhibits, conferences
and other events, publishing, fund-raising, etc. The Newsletter was also instrumental for
enlisting new members and expanding financial support to sustain these activities. And
periodically, the Newsletter printed original, unpublished materials from Reich’s archives.
The first Newsletter in the Spring of 1977 consisted of two stapled, double-sided pages.
The front page was a single article about the research, development and construction of
the Biographical Exhibit on the first floor of the Museum, which was first unveiled in
June 2006 at an Open House that attracted 200 people from the community. The third
page is devoted entirely to a biographical profile of Tom Ross, who began working for
Reich in 1946 as Orgonon’s caretaker, and who was instrumental in the creation and
maintenance of The Wilhelm Reich Museum.
These newsletters—especially those from 1977 to 2004 when we began our e-mail
Updates—are a fascinating and often inspirational documentation of the decades of efforts
to preserve and renew Reich’s legacy.
