Dr. Wilhelm Stekel

Dr. Wilhelm Stekel, Viennese psychoanalyst and formerly an assistant to Sigmund Freud, was found dead in his hotel room in London on June 27, 1940. He was seventy-four years of age.

He was surrounded by open books and documents, one of which said: “I am passing away like a warrior. Guns and cannon are only temporary. The Greatness for which England stands will put right all wrongs.”

Dr. Stekel was one of the original group to become interested in Freud and was one of the founders of the first psychoanalytical society. He also was editor of the Zentralblatt, the first psychoanalytical periodical, which he conducted with Freud and Adler for four or five years. In 1934 he inaugurated an independent quarterly, Psychotherapeutische Praxis.

Dr. Stekel came to the U. S. A. in 1921 for a lecture tour. In 1935 he established in Vienna a “jealousy clinic” for men and women afflicted with the mental malady, which he said was more deadly than typhus or bullets, causing the death of a person somewhere every minute.

Dr. Stekel was a prolific writer, but repetitious and anecdotal, and unsystematic. His chief claim to psychoanalytic distinction was a keen intuitive insight into the significance of symbolization.
