Intellectual Progeny of Seashore and Spence

Iowa Psychologists
  • Donald K. Routh


This chapter is a brief account of some individuals who were part of a stream of nearly 800 Ph.D. graduates of the Department of Psychology and the Institute of Child Behavior and Development (the former Child Welfare Research Station) of the University of Iowa, from 1897 to the present. Such an account is appropriate for a Festschrift volume such as the present one in that all of the contributors to the book have direct or indirect Iowa connections. As already noted, George Wischner, whose approaching retirement was the occasion for planning this book, was an Iowa Ph.D. under Wendell Johnson and Kenneth W. Spence. Wischner is also an academic descendent of Carl E. Seashore via Johnson and Lee Edward Travis.
