WALTER DILL SCOTT applied psychology to the fields of advertising, vocational aptitude, and business. He created a rating scale that would predict a job applicant's success in a given position; this scale was modified for the military during World War I with great success. For this contribution, Scott earned a Distinguished Service Medal at the end of the war. He retired as President Emeritus from Northwestern University, which he led from 1920 -1939.
