Fredric Wertham

  • A Study of Pain

    A well-known psychiatrist, the author of The World Within and Dark Legend, DR. FREDRIC WERTHAM, Director of the Psychiatric Division at Queens GeneraI Hospital in New York, was obliged to undergo a series of painful operations without general anesthetics. In a sense he was his own guinea pig. and the notes he made on pain have proved of professional interest. His article is drawn from the hook When Doctors Are Patients, edited by Max Pinner, M.D., and Benjamin F. Miller. M.D., which Norton will publish in April.
