He attended Washington University for his undergraduate studies, earning his BS in 1923, and then completed his MD at Washington University School of Medicine in 1925. He completed further graduate study at the University of Chicago, the University of Cincinnati, and the American Institute of Family Relations in Marriage Counseling and Family Problems.

He maintained this position for the rest of his career, earning emeritus status in 1969.
