W. Beran Wolfe
W. Béran Wolfe, M.D. was a psychiatrist and author. He was born in Vienna in 1900, but educated in the United States. He went back to Vienna for postgraduate study, and became an assistant to Alfred Adler (one of the great triumvirate of Viennese psychologists, the other two being Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung).
After his time in Vienna, Wolfe returned to New York, where he practiced psychiatry. His writing work was done between 11 pm and 3 am, and he always wrote to music on gramophone records. He was apparently killed in an accident in 1935.
These details have been shamelessly lifted from a blog entry which cites a book dust jacket as being the only biographical information available.
