Excerpt

T. C. Schneirla was at New York University from 1927 until his death in 1968 during which time he taught hundreds, if not thousands, of students. Many of these students went on to develop fruitful careers of their own although they did not always identify themselves as comparative psychologists. Of course, many people who did not study directly with Schneirla were greatly influenced by him as well.

Among his students at N. Y. U. was Howard Moltz who went on to teach at Brooklyn College where one of the editors and organizers of the conference series (Gary Greenberg) was his undergraduate student in comparative psychology. His proposal to hold a series of conferences based on T. C. Schneirla's contributions to the science of behavior was enthusiastically supported by Lloyd Benningfield and Martin Reif, Dean of the Graduate School and Associate Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences respectively, at Wichita State University. Through their good offices and the support of John Breazeale, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Wichita State University is sponsoring the conference series. The generous financial support of Mr. & Mrs. Samuel Rudd and their son, Leslie Rudd, made much of the success of the conference possible.

Harold M. Proshansky, President of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and Thomas D. Nicholson, Director of American Museum of Natural History implemented the joining of these two institutions with Wichita State University in the co-sponsorship of the conference series. We wish to thank them for their recognition of the significance of the conference series.

We also wish to acknowledge the following individuals who made the inaugural conference the success it was:
