Born: May 29, 1887 - Chicago, Illinois, USA

Died: Sep. 30, 1955 - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA

Educated at Cornell University where he received his master's degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1912, Thurstone worked briefly in Thomas Edison's laboratory before spending two years as a geometry and drafting instructor at the University of Minnesota. He then studied at the University of Chicago, where he received his PhD in 1917. He was then appointed chairman of the department of psychology at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. In 1924, he returned to the University of Chicago as an associate professor of psychology. In 1927 he became a full professor and continued in that role until his retirement in 1952. While at Chicago, he established the Psychometric Laboratory and helped to found the Psychometric Society. In 1952, he became professor of psychology at the University of North Carolina and continued in that role until his death. In 1934, he published his most important paper, The Vectors of Mind, which presented his use of factor analysis to explain correlations between results in psychological tests. He is responsible for introducing the use of percentile ranking to compare mental performance. In 1949, he was awarded Best Article from the American Psychological Association and the Centennial Award from Northwestern University in 1951. His other works include The Nature of Intelligence (1924), The Reliability and Validity of Tests (1931), Primary Mental Abilities (1938), Factorial Studies of Intelligence (1941) and Multiple-Factor Analysis (1947).
