Paul Greig Dane (1881–1950)

from Age

The funeral took place yesterday of Dr. Paul Greig Dane, one of Melbourne's leading psychiatrists, who died in Royal Melbourne Hospital on Friday after a short illness.

He was buried at Spring Vale Cemetery.

Dr. Dane was one of the pioneers of psychological treatments in Australia, and, although not a psycho-analyst himself, was instrumental in founding the Melbourne Institute for training of psycho-analysts.

It is still the only training centre of its kind in Australia.

Shortly after the war he visited America to study treatment of psychological cases in that country.

Most of his work has been with returned men of both wars. He is survived by his wife and four children.
