Husband, father, friend, physician. Born July 28, 1911, in Austria-Hungary. Died October 2 in Toronto, of congestive heart failure, aged By the age of 3, Milo had demonstrated his lifelong strong-willed character. His parents were pleading with him to hurry and get out of the bathroom so they wouldn't miss the train, to which he calmly replied, "Zug wirt warten." ("Train will wait.") Born into a German-speaking family in the eastern part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, Milo witnessed cataclysmic changes to borders and people. He began school in Vienna but finished in the town of Czernowitz where his schoolteacher father, Samson, had been transferred. By the time of his matriculation, the diploma had been rendered in Romanian.
Milo and his brother Albert completed their medical studies in Vienna while the National Socialists were establishing themselves. Local brownshirts would look them over outside the classroom to see if they passed Aryan muster and would then hand them propaganda pamphlets.
The two brothers treated their mother for rheumatic heart disease but she succumbed at a young age. The family stayed in Czernowitz while Milo specialized in neurology and psychiatry. The Soviets pushed the oncoming Germans back and Milo was conscripted to work in their military hospital. When the Soviets fled from the advancing German army, the family had to don yellow stars and the brothers were forced by the Nazis to give up their practice to look after workers.
One day soldiers came to their home and stole a gold watch and money. Milo had the chutzpah to report this to the local commanding officer and was asked by him to review his men (with his star removed) to identify the culprits. The watch was returned.
The Soviets succeeded in driving the Germans out at which point Milo was drafted as a medical officer into the Russian-made and led Second Polish Army. They made their way by train across Poland and Germany so that by V-E Day Milo found himself on the banks of the river Spree. He and his brother and father settled in Vienna where he met and married Kristine; he worked in several hospitals there.
After their only child, Felix, was born, Milo's brother Albert was sent to reconnoitre potential places to emigrate; the Soviets were still occupying parts of Vienna and Austria. Reports from Australia were unfavourable so Milo and his family (minus father and brother) came to Canada, arriving in Brandon, Manitoba, in 1955. Milo completed an internship there and in Winnipeg and became certified in neurology and psychiatry.
Once in Toronto, the family lived in rooms above a Chinese laundry where he was known as "Dr. Upstairs." Milo's practice included the University of Toronto, the Toronto General Hospital, Addiction Research Foundation and the Workers' Compensation Board Hospital, where he was the chief of psychiatry. Patients, students and colleagues invariably came to admire and depend on him.
Milo was intense, obsessive, occasionally even tyrannical. Yet he was often the height of Viennese charm. As a family man, he was loyal and generous. He expressed cynicism without becoming a cynic. He read widely and constantly. He had a penetrating intellect, vast knowledge and a mordant wit. He quoted Homer in Greek and sang Nestroy in Austrian dialect. Milo loved to engage in joking banter with his son, daughter-in-law Nora, and grandchildren Marc and Stephen, and wanted nothing better than that they do well.
After his long illness, he declared "Genug gepischt" ("I've pissed [that is, lived] long enough") and, as always, calling the shots to the end, he called it a day.
Felix TYNDEL of Toronto is Milo's son.
