George W. Smeltz, M.D—1884-1967

James T. Mc Laughlin

With the death of Doctor George W. Smeltz at age eighty-three psychoanalysis lost another of its pioneers. His fifty-four years of unflagging commitment to analysis began with his auditing Freud's study sessions in 1913-14, continued over more than twenty-five years of relative isolation as 'the first psychoanalyst west of the Alleghenies' and the only qualified analyst in Western Pennsylvania until his teaching activities began to attract and develop younger men in the field. He was active as a training analyst, first at the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Institute and later at the Institute of the Philadelphia Association for Psychoanalysis.
