Thomas Woodrow Wilson, Twenty-Eighth President of the United States: A Psychological Study, by Sigmund Freud and William C. Bullitt, appeared in print for the first time anywhere in December of 1966. With no physical evidence to the contrary, Freudians were able to downplay or even outright deny Freud's participation in the production of such a "bad book," but with the opening of The William Christian Bullitt and Anne Moen Bullitt Papers at the Yale University Library, the extent of Freud's participation is verifiable. This essay clearly establishes the chronology of Freud and Bullitt's collaboration and demonstrates why the book has been shunned by the Freudian community since its first publication.
