Wilhelm Reich is born. Reich will become an associate of Sigmund Freud but his emphasis on sexual energy will lead to a split with conventional psychoanalysis. Reich later builds devices to trap free sexual energy, or "orgone," and makes extreme claims for the effects of concentrated orgone.

Wilhelm Reich's refusal to abandon the promotion and sale of orgone accumulators in the United States will lead to his imprisonment.
