American schizophrenic with frequent sojourns into mental hospitals. Born in New York, his strongly Catholic family moved to Ireland when he was a baby. In his late teens he returned to America and joined the Navy. After some eight months he was diagnosed as schizophrenic and given a medical discharge.

His parents died early in his life and his older brothers gave him a rough time. One of his brothers dabbled in magic, using Tom as his practice subject and later rejected Tom, making him feel guilty for his own illness. This brother was a father-figure to Tom as a child. Tom is sure that he was responsible for the death of someone when he was about twelve, and no logic could dissuade him.

Tom's leading interests centered around magic and the occult and he aspired to become an adept, skilled in alchemy. Due to his illness, he found it difficult to focus for long on any serious study or work. He was intensely aware of himself and his need for love and companionship. He is generous, outgoing and friendly but without discrimination, and others take advantage of him. He doubts his potency and is rather afraid of sexual relationships with a religious fear of committing mortal sin. Tom's IQ is well above average. He is quite shrewd and perceptive in analyzing the motives of others but has difficulty in relating to anyone. He considers himself a coward.

At the time of the report, Tom was not yet 30. He was incapable of employment but was responding well to various anti-psychotic medications. A Navy pension supported his disability but he was anxious to have a job, a career.
