The Fellows Committee of the Society for General Psychology (Div. 1) is proud to announce that 11 psychologists were elected as fellows of the division, based on their “outstanding and unusual” contributions to general psychology. All of them are current APA fellows. According to APA, "Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon APA members who have shown evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology. Fellow status requires that a person's work has had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state, or regional level. A high level of competence or steady and continuing contribution are not sufficient to warrant fellow status. National impact must be demonstrated."

The new fellows are:

  • Mark Bickhard, PhD
  • Stephen Chew, PhD
  • Susan Dutch, PhD
  • Monroe Friedman, PhD
  • Irene Frieze, PhD
  • Sherri McCarthy, PhD
  • ; Darcia Narvaez, PhD
  • Lisa Osbeck, PhD
  • Mark Shermis, PhD
  • Patrick Shrout, PhD
  • Linda Woolf, PhD

My sincerest thanks to Florence Denmark, PhD, Charlotte Patterson, PhD, Janet Sigal, PhD, and Harold Takooshian, PhD, who served as members of the committee this past year.
