Sidney Klein—1896-1958

Sidney Tarachow, M.D.

Following a succession of major illnesses for seven years, Sidney Klein died July 29, 1958. Born in New York of Hungarian Jewish parentage, he was educated in public schools, and attained his premedical and medical training at Columbia University. He graduated an honor student. After a two-year internship at the Jewish Hospital in Brooklyn, he was a general medical practitioner five years. Influenced by Dr. Philip Lehrman, with whom he developed a lifelong friendship and in whose department at Postgraduate Hospital he worked many years, he engaged in training to become a psychoanalyst.

Dr. Klein became a member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute in 1933 and was Treasurer of the Society from 1949 to 1952. He was Associate Attending Psychiatrist at Postgraduate Hospital, where he was an enthusiastic clinician, teacher, and consultant. When the Postgraduate Hospital was merged with Bellevue Hospital, he was appointed Associate Attending Neurologist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry. In 1945 he joined the staff of Hillside Hospital where he served as Vice-President of the Medical Board.

In recent years Dr. Klein's greatest activity was at Hillside Hospital where, after making clear and definite contributions to clinical discussions or to the work of a committee, he was nevertheless dissatisfied, always trying to be clearer and more helpful; he demanded the highest standards of performance from himself.
