N. Lionel Blitzsten, M.D. (1893-1952): The Theories of a Pioneer American Psychoanalyst

Jerome Kavka

N. Lionel Blitzsten (1893-1952), one of America's most gifted psychoanalytic clinicians and teachers, appears to have been the first practicing Freudian psychoanalyst west of New York (Orr, 1961; Gitelson, 1953; Oberndorf, 1953). Born to Russian immigrants in Chicago, he was educated in its schools and hospitals.
