Edward L. Thorndike

a.k.a. Edward Lee Thorndike

Author Code: AELT

Born: Aug. 31, 1874 - Williamsburg, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Aug. 9, 1949 - Montrose, New York, USA

Educated at Wesleyan, Harvard, where he worked with William James, and Columbia universities, Thorndike initially worked at Case Western University's College for Women for a year before joining the staff at Teacher's College at Columbia University as an instructor in psychology. He remained at Teacher's College until his retirement in 1939. Thorndike went on to become one of America's foremost educational psychologists. In 1903, he published Educational Psychology which established his credentials in this area of study. During the First World War, Thorndike assisted the U.S. Army in establishing the Military Entrance Exam. He also developed psychological 'connectionism' which proposed that connections were formed in the brain between perceived stimuli and emitted responses. He was elected president of the American Psychological Association in 1912, and in 1934 became the president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His many works include The Elements of Psychology (1905), Animal Intelligence (1911), The Teachers' Word Book (1921), The Psychology of Arithmetic (1922), The Measurement of Intelligence (1927), The Fundamentals of Learning (1932) and The Psychology of Wants, Interests and Attitudes (1947).
