"g~q6J&t ej01897 Nov 11 Born in Montezuma, Indiana as the youngest of four boys (Harold, Floyd, Fayette, & GW, in descending order of age).心理学空间:J"Z$c7wn4A Q
Father was John Edwards Allport (b. 1863), a "country doctor" who came to this career after working in business; mother was Nellie Edith (Wise) Allport (b. 1862) who had been a school teacher.
7u(@(^ ftF-h4`g)X0Raised in Glenville (Cleveland), OH in a home "marked by plain Protestant piety and hard work" (Allport, 1967, p. 4)
*tZ#\7n2n.{0His older brother, Floyd (1890-1978), attended Harvard University before Gordon, both as an undergraduate and as a graduate student. And while Gordon collaborated on two early papers with Floyd in the 1920s, their approaches to psychology diverged and they shared no further professional authorship together. G. W. did admire his brother's "fierce personal and professional integrity" (Allport, 1967, p. 13) and occasionally relied upon Floyd for professional advice and critique.心理学空间!t4j"?#f pZO

vOQN2T|#g2L+d5Js01915-1919 Attended Harvard as an undergraduate with interests in psychology and social ethics.心理学空间xU,r#[3R!V;Wb
He studied psychology with Hugo Münsterberg, Edwin B. Holt, Leonard Troland, Walter Dearborn, Ernest Southard, and Herbert Langfeld. His brother, Floyd, also served as an instructor in experimental psychology (Allport, 1967).心理学空间3]p ~x-ePx#|#}
While attending Harvard College, he did field and volunteer social work in the West End of Boston and through a variety of organizations including the Phillips Brooks House.

1920 Encounter with Sigmund Freud in Vienna at which Freud misinterpreted a remark of Allport's; this led to a lifelong distaste by Allport for quick psychoanalytic interpretations.心理学空间"cJ6H2u*z ?
1920-1922 Doctoral studies at Harvard in Psychology. Ph.D. awarded for a doctoral dissertation: "An Experimental Study of the Traits of Personality: With Special Reference to the Problem of Social Diagnosis" (Mentor: Herbert S. Langfeld with William McDougall and James Ford as readers)心理学空间 }'Z$\}a3]f+h
1922-1924 Sheldon Traveling Scholarship which brought him in 1922-23 to Germany and in 1923-24 to Cambridge University, UK
9a5_.i&K MD(b3n0In Germany he studied with Stumpf & Dessoir, the Gestaltists (Werthheimer, Köhler, & E. Spranger) in Berlin as well as Heinz Werner and Wilhelm Stern (in Hamburg). He gained a very broad and deep understanding of the currents in German psychological research. He noted that "Germany had converted me from my undergraduate semifaith in behaviorism" (Allport, 1967, p. 12)心理学空间)[;L%Bu@A1x%v!~
In England, he found himself mulling over much of what he had experienced in German psychology; he did work with both Frederick Bartlett and Ivor A. Richards in minor fashion.
%i&j7b'To(Y0S*l,c@ P01925 Married Ada Lufkin Gould who was trained as a clinical psychologist. Their son, Robert, was born June 29, 1927 and later became a pediatrician (Nicholson, 2003).心理学空间T&~n0BA2pD

Profoundly influenced by Dr. Richard Cabot who taught both cardiology and social ethics at Harvard. He found in Cabot a man who "followed a theory and practice of philanthropy that appealed directly to my own sense of values. He believed as strongly as I in the integrity of each human life..." (Allport, 1967, p. 11). His involvement with Cabot led to assuming direction of the famed Cambridge-Somerville Youth Study following the physician's death.心理学空间9TD*Jr:} VGhWj$R n

His collaboration with students have included psychologists such as Philip Vernon, Gardner Lindzey, Hadley Cantril, Jerome Bruner, Leo Postman, Thomas Pettigrew and many others.
+z D ?/@H;T0During the late 1930s and the Second World War, Allport served the APA as head of an Emergency Committee in Psychology to deal with refugee scholars from Europe (Stern, Köhler, Lewin, the Bühlers, and others). He also worked with Henry A. Murray on issues of civilian morale and the problem of rumors. He extended these academic interests and professional activities subsequently to a broad research program examining prejudice and group conflict in both American and foreign societies.

1946 Cofounded the Department of Social Relations at Harvard which combined the social, personality and clinical psycological faculty with cultural anthropologists and sociologists. The department would rejoin with the more biologically and experimentally-oriented Psychology Department in 1972. No longer a department chairperson, Allport chaired the Committee on Higher Degrees which gave him an important role in fostering the graduate careers of many in the post-War growth of graduate studies at Harvard.心理学空间y-NW\2[+e3X

~V!jA:wz I ]N w01965 Publication of Letters from Jenny. For many years Allport had used a series of 300 letters from a woman (from age 58 to 70, the year of her death) as the focus of student discussion and analysis in a seminar on personality. This book gathers these letters together. This same year the Department of Social Relations moved into the new 15-story William James Hall; Allport left his Emerson Hall locale for practically the first time in 50 years. Allport began a "semiretirement" in 1965 (he was scheduled to teach only in Fall semesters with the Spring free for writing and traveling).心理学空间t?zK(kj

How does the work of Allport contribute to narrative in psychology or the social sciences generally? There are are at least three aspects of his work -- methodological, theoretical, and pedagogical -- which prepared the way historically to the eventual development of the narrative perspective. While Allport generally supported rigorous experimental and quantitative approaches to research, he did not dismiss other methodologies, grounded in more qualitative means of data collection and analysis, as many of his purely experimental colleagues did. Allport knew the tradition of Geisteswissenschaften in the works of mentors like Wilhelm Stern and Eduard Spranger in Germany. He had studied with them as a post-doctoral visitor in the early 1920s. And, while Allport was hesitant about the absence of quantitative and methodological precision in their work (Nicholson, 2003), he also advocated a variety of non-experimental approaches to data collection and analysis in the development of personality psychology. These approaches were summarized in large measure in his 1942 monograph, The Use of Personal Documents in Psychological Science, which he prepared at the behest of the Social Science Research Council.

At the opening of his autobiography, Allport (1967) posed a set of empirical questions: "How shall a psychological life history be written? What processes and what structures must a full-bodied account of personality include? How can one detect unifying threads in a life, if they exist? The greater part of my particular work can be viewed as an attempt to answer such questions through piecemeal and stepwise research and writing" (p. 3) This interest in the entire life, the full personality,心理学空间8n$|+r TV3a

A second retrospective set of essays (to his 1960 Personality and Social Encounter) which Allport gathered shortly before his death and published posthumously.

"Nicholson masterfully combines biography with intellectual history to reveal the ways in which Allport's science was embedded in the cultural politics of America in the 1920s and the 1930s. He argues that personality's emergence as an object of science was linked to the gradual demise of character and the self-sacrificing, morally grounded self that it supported."

9V#@]3Kh1_RW-yk0Based upon Prof. Pandora's thesis in the Science Studies program at UC San Diego, this groundbreaking study approaches the work of Gordon Allport and the Murphys -- Gardner and Lois Barclay -- within the social, economic, political and scientific context of the US during the 1930s and 1940s. The questions raised by the wider social issues of the day "suggested to Allport and the Murphys that psychological research could be used to critique American culture and thus to help create a more democratic polity" (p. 3). She situates all three psychologists within their own educational and personal histories and details common and unique themes across their research programs and professional engagements. 78 pages of endnotes serve as a grand treasure trove of leads and contemporary resources related to Allport and his colleagues.
