Abstract

The Wilhelm Reich Museum in Rangeley is part of a campus called Orgonon where Reich, a psychoanalyst-turned-scientist, experimented with "orgone energy" and created his unusual therapies and inventions. Reich died in 1957 in a state penitentiary, after being pursued by the Food and Drug Administration. Mary Higgins, 78, who never knew him, is doing what she can to keep the Orgone Institute alive and to publish Reich's letters and writings. Higgins was a young woman in New York City when she took on the task of seeing that Reich's will was carried out, standing up in court against his own children to uphold it. She has turned the vandalized and ridiculed center into an attraction for the Rangeley community, while nurturing public interest in Reich and his work.
