Boring, Redfield Will Retire This Summer
Edwin G. Boring, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, and Alfred C. Redfield, professor of Physiology, will retire this summer from the faculty of Arts and Sciences.
Boring is the recognized authority on the history of modern experimental psychology and was appointed, along with the late Zechariah Chaffee, Jr. the first Lowell Television Lecturer. His own specialty is the field of sensation and perception, in which he has worked extensively since his arrival at Harvard in 1922.
Redfield is a leading authority on the functions of the blood but has also played a very active part in the University's oceanographic programs. He has been Associate Director and Senior Oceanographer of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
