Dr. Hugh T. Carmichael, 82, a former vice president and director of continuing education for psychiatry of the American Psychiatric Association in Washington, died of a cerebral hemorrhage Saturday at the Monticello nursing home in Oak Lawn, Ill.

Dr. Carmicheal had a private practice in pyschiatry and was a professor of psychiatry at the University of Illinois in Chicago before moving to Washington in 1967. He was director of continuing education for the APA until 1974, when he retired. He continued to live in Washington until last year, when he returned to Chicago.

He was on the staff of the Worcester State Hospital in Worcestor, Mass., from 1930 to 1935.

He then moved to Chicago, where he taught at the University of Chicago before setting up his own practice and joining the faculty of the Unversity of Illinois, from which he retired as professor-emeritus in 1966.

Dr. Carmichael's survivors include his wife, Carolyn of Chicago; three sons, Dr. William G., of Boston, Donald, of London, Ontario, and Peter, of San Francisco; two daughters, Elizabeth Goble of Toronto, and Sandra Carmichael-Calvert of Syracuse, N.Y., a sister, Dr. Agnes Carmichael of Toronto, and five grandchildren.
