Dr Kubie was described by colleagues as an orthodox Freudian psychoanalyst who constantly challenged orthodoxies of all kinds, including his own, had lectured widely, written several books and many articles on his specialty. He had practiced in New York from 1930 to 1959 and had been on the faculties of six medical schools and on the staffs of as many hospitals. In 1965 in an address to the American Psychoanalytic Association, Dr. Kubie called for a total reversal in the sequence of training psychiatrists and psychoanalysts: "We're going to have to begin where we now end with training in the psychiatry of child development and the neurotic process," he declared. The chairman of the session, Dr. Eugene Pumpian-Mindlin, said that many of Dr. Kubie's heterodox views, originally scorned, are now incorporated into our theory. Discussing the custody of the children of divorced parents in 1964 in The Yale Law Journal, Dr. Kubie advocated that the parents share the child, with an impartial committee to arbitrate any disagreements. In 1948 he told the Child Study Association of America that "only by letting a child express his conflicts and confusion so that they can be corrected as they arise, instead of bottling them up, we can avoid the process of neurotic distortion, which turns normal aggression into a blind, insatiable, destructive force." At his death, Dr. Kubie was an emeritus lecturer in psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and consultant and senior associate in psychiatric research and training at Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital in Towson. He was formerly on the faculties of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University; the Yale School of Medicine and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and had served on the staffs of the Neurological Institute of New York and Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Kubie was the author of "Practical and Theoretical Aspects of Psychoanalysis" and "Neurotic Distortion of the Creative Process," and many articles. He was past editor of The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders. He was formerly president of the New York Psychoanalytic Society and the American Psychosomatic Society, secretary of the American Psychoanalytic Association and a member of the New York Academy of Medicine. He graduated from Harvard College in 1916 and received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University in 1921. He later held a National Research Council Fellowship in neurology in London.
