Grant Family Visit

 Celebrating the 100th Birthday of Professor David A. Grant

May 17th, 2016 marks what would have been the 100th birthday of Professor David A. Grant (1916-1977), former chair and faculty member of the Psychology Department.

Dr. Grant at one point shared an office with Professor Harry Harlow, although Professor Harlow spent much of his time at the Primate Research Center, leaving the shared office to Dr. Grant. Professor Grant was chair of the department from 1950-1954 and 1971-1974. He oversaw the department's move to its current home in the Brogden Psychology Building. 

His children Douglas, Edward and Marjorie, and grandchild Kristin Niederberger (Marjorie's daughter, Psych Alum '88, Phi Betta Kappa) visited the campus to see some of their old haunts and to celebrate all of the hard work that Dr. Grant put into this department.
