Wilfred Hulse, MD was born in Germany in 1900 and received his medical degree at Breslau University, magna cum laude, in 1924. He trained in psychiatry and pediatrics. His first teacher in psychiatry was Emil Kraepelin. When Hitler came into power, Dr. Hulse left Berlin, where he was practicing, spent a year in Tunis, and then came to New York in 1935. He then joined the staff of the Mount Sinai Hospital. He published extensively in general psychiatry, child psychiatry, and group psychotherapy. He helped found Aufbau, the German language periodical, and worked to rescue many compatriots from the Nazi menace. While serving as President of the New York Council on Child Psychiatry, he died suddenly on January 9, 1962.
