Jeanne Hoff Archive

[Photo of Dr. Jeanne Hoff]

Dr. Jeanne Hoff, a psychiatrist trained at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO, worked with the Harry Benjamin Practice, and later opened her own private practice in transgender care. Dr. Hoff herself went through sexual reassignment surgery in the late 1970's. Her archives are inclusive of her professional records and documentation, book reviews, correspondences and essays.

Also included are TV appearances, notably an award-winning episode from the NBC show, "Not for Women Only," produced by Madeline Amgott, hosted by Polly Bergen and Frank Fields. An interview by Lynn Redgrave and Frank Fields as Jeanne commenced her transition was titled, "Becoming Jeanne…A Search for Sexual Identity" and was broadcasted by NBC on 30 June 1978. "Becoming Jeanne" won the prestigious Ohio State Broadcasting award in 1979, and Madeline Amgott was nominated for an Emmy award.
