Mary Whiton Calkins

Author Code: AMWC

Born: Mar. 30, 1863 - Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Died: Feb. 26, 1930 - Newton, Massachusetts, USA

Educated at Smith College, she took a year off when her sister died, and spent her time studying Greek. She finally graduated from Smith in 1884. After graduation, she and her family spent eighteen months touring Europe. When she returned, and with the help of her father, she took a position as a tutor in the Greek department of Wellesley College. After three years, she was offered a position teaching psychology in the philosophy department. She then spent a year studying psychology. She then studied at Harvard Annex (later Radcliffe College). She studied with William James and Josiah Royce. Interested in experimental rather than theoretical psychology, she initially set up a laboratory at Clark University before moving on to Wellesley. In 1891, she became a psychology instructor at Wellesley's philosophical department. For the next three years, she studied under Hugo Munsterberg, publishing many papers during this time. In 1896, she presented her doctoral dissertation, but because of her sex, she was denied a degree! She became an associate professor of psychology at Wellesley, later to become full professor. Staring in 1900, Calkins began to publish papers that defined her 'science of self'. During her career, she published hundreds of papers and, by 1903, she was ranked among the top 50 psychologists. She was elected president of the American Psychological Association in 1905 and the American Philosophical Association in 1918. Her works include An Introduction to Psychology (1901), The Life and Teachings of Herbert Spencer (1903), A First Book in Psychology (1914), The Persistent Problem of Philosophy (1917), A Good Man and the Good (1918) and Autobiography of Mary Whiton Calkins (1930)
