Psychology, Child Health, and Human Development

  • Donald K. Routh


It is nice to be able to come back to Oklahoma City after all these years. As a personal note, I might mention to you that I was born here, was an undergraduate at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, and was a clinical psychology intern in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences here on the Oklahoma City Campus in 1966–67.
