Joseph Jefferson Asch, M.D—1880-1935

Dr. Asch, one of the founders of the New York Psychoanalytic Society, died on August 15, 1935.

Dr. Asch was born in New York on May 30, 1880. He was brought up in the atmosphere of science and art. He was an excellent student and athlete at college and medical school. He was graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1902, thereupon adopting urology as his specialty. In this branch of surgery he contributed much toward the conservative treatment of venereal infections. He was a pioneer in the field of cystoscopy, chief of Clinic at the Lenox Hill Hospital, consulting cystoscopist at that institution, and a member of the American Urological Society.

Dr. Asch was one of the first to see the tremendous importance of the liaison between clinical medicine and psychoanalysis. He studied with Freud in 1922, and was an attentive participant in every advanced lecture course and seminar on psychoanalytic subjects that was available.

His medical talents, in both the clinical and psychological spheres, were equalled by his talent for æsthetic appreciation. He was a fine musician, a keen connoisseur of many arts, an enthusiastic traveler and ethnologist, a superb raconteur, and above all, a master of the art of gracious living.
