Francis McLaughlin, M.D. (1914–1986)

Edward M. Weinshel

Dr Francis McLaughlin, the former Secretary and Treasurer of the International Psychoanalytical Association died of cardiac failure on 17 February 1986. His death brought an end to an illustrious and dedicated psychoanalytic career that spanned a period of almost 45 years.

Dr McLaughlin was born in Syracuse, New York on 2 October 1914; twenty-five years later he received his M.D. degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine after which he completed his internship at the University Hospital in Baltimore and a psychiatric residency at the Sheppard Pratt Hospital. Dr McLaughlin received his psychoanalytic training at the Washington-Baltimore Psychoanalytic Institute, from which he graduated in 1946. He was one of the original members of the Baltimore Psychoanalytic Society which had split off from the Washington Society in 1947 and had played a pivotal role in the establishment and development of that organization from its inception until his retirement shortly before his death. He served as an active and highly-respected teacher at the Baltimore Institute and was a Supervising and Training Analyst for over 30 years. He was elected president of the Baltimore Society in 1955 and the Director of the Institute from 1953 through 1959 and Chairman of its Education Committee from 1970 to 1974.

Dr McLaughlin became a member of the American Psychoanalytic Association in 1946 and a Life Member in 1976. He became involved in the administration of the APA in 1954 and served on important APA committees or held sensitive APA offices almost to the end of his life.
