Tip: To see translations of Freud SE or GW…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

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'.
