Leo Rangell an Appreciation

Jacob A. Arlow, M.D.

In honor of his seventy-fifth birthday this year, the editors of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly salute Dr. Leo Rangell, a man whose record of achievement and contribution to psychoanalysis is nearly without parallel in our generation. Dr. Rangell has made an indelible mark on the development of psychoanalysis in our time, not only in the United States but in the rest of the world as well. Teacher, author, administrator, and clinician, he has been identified with every aspect of psychoanalysis. His role as representative of psychoanalysis of the world at large was epitomized on that historic occasion in 1971 when he presided over the Congress of the International Psychoanalytical Association as it convened for the first time since the Second World War, in Vienna, the birthplace of psychoanalysis.

A truly astounding record of academic achievement and professional experience had prepared him for this role. Leo Rangell was born and, for the most part, educated in the City of New York. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Columbia University in 1933, he received his M.D. at the University of Chicago School of Medicine and went on to training in neurology and psychiatry at Montefiore, at Grasslands Hospital, and at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. After three years as a candidate at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, Dr. Rangell left to serve in the U.S. Army Air Force, from which he was discharged in 1946 with the rank of Major. After the war, he settled in California, completing his training at the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Institute.

Brief as his professional career was in New York, it afforded him sufficient opportunity to exercise his creative energies.
