M. D. Eder 1866–1936

Ernest Jones

It is with profound regret that we announce the death on March 30, after a short and painful illness, of Dr. M. D. Eder. Universally liked and respected, his kindly personality will be widely missed.

Dr. Eder was born in August, 1866. He studied medicine at St. Bartholomew's Hospital and before settling in practice travelled widely, in the United States, in South Africa and in Bolivia. In the latter country he learned Spanish, became a Civil Surgeon attached to the Army and saw some war service. Returning to London in 1900 he entered general practice. In his early years he was an active Socialist and played a prominent part in the Fabian Society.

Dr. Eder's social and medical interests had been linked together, the link taking the form of special interest in schoolchildren. He was Medical Officer of the London School Clinic in 1908 and of the Nursery School, Deptford, in 1910. Before that he had been made the editor of School Hygiene. The work he did in these years and earlier did much to pave the way for the official medical services in school hygiene which the London County Council was then instituting.

My friendship with Dr. Eder goes back some thirty-two years. He worked with me first in medicine and I then gradually aroused his interest in psycho-analysis, to which he sympathetically responded. He was one of the first in England to practise psycho-analysis, in 1910, and was, before the War, the first Secretary of the British Psycho-Analytical Society (at that time called the London Psycho-Analytical Society).
