Albert A. Rosner—1910-1962

Charles Brenner, M.D.

Albert A. Rosner was born in New York City on July 30, 1910. He died there on March 3, 1962, of a myocardial infarction while participating in a research symposium on hypnosis at Bellevue Hospital.

For the last eleven years of his life Dr. Rosner was a member of the New York Psychoanalytic Society and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. During those years he served both Society and Institute in many capacities. At the time of his death he was the Society's representative to the Executive Council of the American Psychoanalytic Association, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Institute, chairman of the Library Committee, and a member of the Program Committee. Previously he had been for many years chairman of the Society's Publication Committee, which is responsible for preparing the summaries of its meetings that are a regular feature of This QUARTERLY. In all of these capacities Dr. Rosner demonstrated a rare combination of talents. He had high intellectual gifts, true scholarship, and tireless industry. Whatever he undertook to do he did conscientiously and well, with both thoroughness and an excellent sense of proportion. At the same time there was no one who was easier to work with or work for. He had a great capacity for friendship and an unusual sweetness and gentleness of spirit.

From the time of his matriculation at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute in 1946 psychoanalysis stood first among Rosner's many interests. Even before 1946, however, he had had a distinguished medical and scientific career. He received his A.B. in 1931 and his M.D. four years later from the University of Pennsylvania. Following a two-year rotating internship he spent a year as resident at the New York Psychiatric Institute, two years as resident at the New York Neurological Institute, and a year as research associate of the Matheson Commission for Research in Encephalitis. He published half a dozen psychiatric and neurological papers during the years 1939 to 1942, one of them a chapter on the psychiatric sequelae of epidemic encephalitis in a volume issued by the Matheson Commission.

From 1941 to 1945 Rosner served in the U. S. Army Air Force, in which he attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
