Psychology Genealogy

I can trace my psychology genealogy back to Wilhelm Wundt. The following is a list of the psychologists and their advisees from Wundt (1856) to me (2008). There are 152 years and eight degrees of separation between Wundt and myself.
  1.  Wilhelm Wundt (M.D., University of Heidelberg – 1856 )
  2.  George F. Arps (Ph.D., University of Leipzig – 1908)
  3.  Donald G. Paterson (M.A., The Ohio State University – 1917)
  4.  John G. Darley (Ph.D., University of Minnesota – 1937)
  5.  John L. Harland (Ph.D., University of Minnesota – 1952)
  6.  W. Bruce Walsh (Ph.D., University of Iowa – 1965)
  7.  Arnold R. Spokane (Ph.D., The Ohio State University – 1976)
  8.  Mark H. Fugate (Ph.D., Lehigh University – 1993)
