The American Institute of Hypnosis was a scholarly society founded in 1955 by Dr. William Joseph Bryan. The membership was comprised of scholars and practitioners of medicine, dentistry, psychology, psychiatry, theology, law, etc. According to one source, it became “the world’s most respected educational institution devoted solely to teaching hypnosis in medicine and dentistry to physicians and dentists all over the world”. William Joseph Bryan, Jr. (1926–1977) first worked as a military psychiatrist and became involved in research for the CIA including ‘mind control’ Projects Artichoke and, MKUltra. He later focused on legal hypnosis; he is known for inducing Albert DeSalvo’s confession to multiple homicides under hypnosis.
