Earl G. Witenberg, M.D.

THE WILLIAM ALANSON WHITE INSTITUTE OWES MUCH to Erich Fromm; it is fitting at this time to have an issue of Contemporary Psychoanalysis dedicated to his memory. He was one of the founders of the Institute and was its first Chairman of the Faculty (1943–49). He was instrumental in founding the "Low Cost Psychoanalytic Service" in 1948. He taught regularly at the Institute for many years after his move to Mexico in 1949. Among its senior members will be found analysands, supervisees, and students of Erich Fromm. His heritage lives in them. He will be remembered for the incisiveness of his observations—both clinical and theoretical. He was clear and direct in his formulations. He could illuminate the deepest aspects of a patient's difficulty with a formulation both confronting and comforting. Always lively, he suffered no sham or pretense. No one left an encounter with Fromm feeling "so-so"; instead admiration, delight, anger, and anxiety were the feelings engendered by him. Always concentrating on what was being said to him, he was not overly serious and had a lively sense of humor; he managed to be both warm and reserved.
