Overview


Harry Levi Hollingworth was one of the pioneers in the field known today as industrial-organizational psychology. He was the author of more than twenty books and one hundred scientific and theoretical articles. His honors were many. In 1940, Hollingworth took stock of his life in an autobiography that focused on his origins in rural Nebraska and his career as a psychologist at Columbia University. For the first time, this autobiography is now available. This book provides an intimate account of the life and career of a very successful applied researcher who claims that the applied problems to which he devoted virtually his entire life were never of interest to him and that he did such work only for the money. The paradox of this claim offers considerable insight into the prejudices faced by applied scientists and how Hollingworth tried to separate himself from his own accomplishments.
