Dr. Karl Abraham

Smith Ely Jelliffe

Resolution of New York Psychoanalytic Society—January, 1926

The announcement of the death at the early age of forty—eight of Dr. Karl Abraham of Berlin, President of the International Psychoanalytic Association, on Christmas day, 1925, is received with deep personal regret.

Dr. Abraham's work in psychiatry, in neurology and of later years in psychoanalysis has received worldwide recognition for its manner of presentation as well as for its content which is definitely original and at the same time of distinct therapeutic service.

His personality, his fine qualities of heart, balanced judgment and great courtesy endeared him to all who came in contact with him.

It was chiefly around him that the Berlin Group collected and through his tactful consideration in debate and discussion the group of workers in psychoanalysis has been made into a well knit band of active students of psychoanalytic problems.

The comparatively young discipline of psychoanalysis can ill afford to lose such capable disciples and all of his fellow workers will miss not only the charm of his presence but the stimulus of his thought.

Be it resolved that a fitting biographical sketch be prepared by one of our members to be presented to the PSYCHOANALYTIC REVIEW, the International Zeitschrift, the International Journal of Psycho—analysis, American Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry, and that a copy of these resolutions be entered upon our minutes and also be sent to the member of his immediate family.
