Died: Jul. 31, 1957 - Gloucester, Massachusetts, USA
Educated at the University of Vienna Medical School, Hitschmann graduated in 1895 and began practising internal medicine. In 1905, he joined the Wednesday Psychological Society. Becoming a close friend and adherent of Freud and his theories, Hitschmann published Freud's Theories of the Neuroses in 1911. In 1922, when the psychoanalytic outpatient clinic was established in Vienna, Freud appointed Hitschmann as its director. As with Freud, Hitschmann fled the Nazis in 1938 and spent a few years in London before settling in Boston, Massachusetts. His other works include Frigidity in Women (1936) and Great Men: Psychoanalytic Studies (1956).
