Gustav Bychowski 1895–1972

Fabian X. Schupper and Harry Slochower

As we go to press, news reaches us that Gustav Bychowski died in Morocco.

With his passing, psychoanalysis is deprived of one of its most creative personalities. We of The American Imago are especially saddened. We were proud that he chose to be actively associated with us on our Editorial Board since 1965. We have lost both a friend and an associate who gave generously of his great gifts in our efforts to apply psychoanalytic theory to the humanities.

His last public appearance, in February of this year, was at a testimonial by The Association for Applied Psychoanalysis and of The American Imago, honoring him for a lifetime dedicated to scientific and humanistic contributions. It was at that occasion that Gustav Bychowski spoke with his characteristic warmth and depth, in remembrance of things past, and of tasks ahead of us.

Such was Gustav Bychowski's seemingly inexhaustible energy that he worked incessantly until the very end. His paper on “Marcel Proust and His Mother” which we will publish in a subsequent issue, was written shortly before his death. Dr. Bychowski had been preoccupied with this theme from the earliest years. Some forty years ago, he published his first article on Proust: “Marcel Proust als Dichter der Psychoanalyse” which appeared in the Psychoanalytische Bewegung. He thus completed the circle of a life-long interest.

In a subsequent issue, we will bring a fuller appreciation of Gustav Bychowski and of his eminent contributions by Jan Ehrenwald.
