About the Author

A native of Vienna, Richard Sterba received his MD from the University of Vienna Medical School in 1923. He was a member of the first class to receive psychoanalytic training at the Vienna Psychoanalytic Institute and was a training analyst there for ten years. He relocated to Detroit in 1939, where he became a practicing psychoanalyst.


Sterba's work extends from A-G.'Someone once asked Richard Sterba why he stopped working on the dictionary at "G". He replied jokingly that the last word was "Grossenwahn" (megalomania), and he realized that the project reflected his own megalomania. As a result he withdrew from it.'- From the Epilogue by Katherine J. Michels, MD, Robert Michels, MD, and Verena Sterba Michels, MSW
