On Ralph R. Greenson from the introduction by Dr. Harry Polkinhorn: "According to his son Daniel, Ralph Greenson was born on September 20, 1911, in Brooklyn, New York, and died on November 24, 1979, in Los Angeles, California. He was a twin. His father was a physician, his mother a pharmacist, so he came from a scientific background. After studying at Columbia University, and because Jews were still blocked from some American medical schools, Greenson pursued his medical training at the University of Bern between 1930 and 1934, where he met Hildi Troesch, whom he later married and with whom he had two children, Daniel and Joan. After medical school, Greenson began analytic training with Wilhelm Stekel in Vienna. Because he was not satisfied with his initial experiences, Greenson undertook further training in Los Angeles in 1938, where he had an analysis with Otto Fenichel. Greenson settled in Los Angeles and became an important member of the psychoanalytic community there, eventually achieving prominence as a scholar, lecturer, and teacher of analytic candidates and medical students. Greenson used his charisma and love of psychoanalysis to support various causes, such as the Center for Early Education, the Reiss-Davis Clinic, the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, and the Anna Freud Foundation. He also assisted with the founding of the San Diego Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Greenson served on various editorial boards of important journals in his field and was a frequent participant at national and international professional meetings. Greenson served on the Board of Professional Standards of the American Psychoanalytic Association and was President and Dean of the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, as well as Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at U.C.L.A."
