Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology: Volume VI

cover-ppp-viThe latest in the series Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology, Volume VI pays tribute to several big names in psychology, such as Abraham Maslow, Henry Murray, Edmund Clark Sanford, James McKeen Cattell, Robert Woodworth, Nobel Prize winner Niko Tinbergen, and some perhaps lesser-known luminaries who nonetheless made significant contributions to the field. Among the many inspiring accounts is that of the challenges faced by Kenneth Clark, the first African American president of the American Psychological Association, whose scholarly work on racial prejudice and efforts to unite social science and social activism helped lay the groundwork for the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, which ended segregation in the schools.
