OBITUARY --- Moses M. Frohlich

Moses M. Frohlich, professor emeritus of psychiatry, passed away Dec. 31 at his home in Laguna Hills, Calif. He was 93.

Frohlich came to the U.S. from Austria in 1920 and attended the U-M, where he received his Bachelor's degree in 1928. He received his M.D. from the University in 1932.

He was an intern and resident in the Department of Internal Medicine in 1932 and was appointed instructor in the Department of Psychiatry in 1937. He took a leave of absence to serve in the Army in WWII as chief of psychiatry in the University of Michigan unit, the 298th General Hospital. The unit was the first general hospital in Europe after D-Day.

On his return from service in 1945, Frolich was promoted to assistant professor of psychiatry and was director of the Veteran's Readjustment Center until its close in 1962. In 1951, he was named full professor.

On his retirement in 1973, the Regents said, "In his service to the University, Frohlich combined an excellent administrative talent and imaginative teaching ability. He was a respected and skilled practitioner in dealing with mental illness."

He is survived by his wife, Dorothy; sons, Michael and Tom, a sister, Anna Goldschlag; and three grandchildren.
