Clinton P. McCord—1881-1953

Joost A.M. Meerloo

Clinton McCord started his medical vocation as Director of Health in the Albany, New York, Public School System, where for fifteen years he had ample opportunity to become acquainted with the emotional needs of his pupils and patients. This experience determined his decision to become a psychiatrist. His studies directed his interests to psychoanalysis and he went in 1928 to Vienna to be analyzed by Professor Freud, which resulted in a close personal friendship. Dr. McCord returned to Albany where, as the only psychoanalyst in a vast territory, he exerted a great influence in introducing psychoanalysis to the medical profession in upper New York State.

A man of abundant energies, Dr. McCord was a tireless worker in the interests of his patients, his profession, and the community in which he lived. His seventieth birthday was made the occasion of a celebration which was attended by a large number of his colleagues and friends.

When Professor Freud died, Dr. McCord wrote a moving tribute to his friend and mentor, Freud—The Man, which was published in the Psychiatric Quarterly in 1940.

He died on May 10, 1953. In life, Clinton McCord was a modest man who deprecated praise for his numberless good deeds—personal, professional and social. Now I am sure he would say, 'No tributes, no mourning; keep the light burning'.
