Social Relations and Morale in Small Groups

By Eric F. Gardner; George G. Thompson | Go to book overview

Preface

This volume is the result of four years of intensive study and research supported by the Group Psychology Branch of the Office of Naval Research. In 1952 we became co-directors of the research project that was to consume all our free time during four academic years and our full time during the summers and vacation periods. During these four years we engaged in countless hours of joint discussions and cooperative planning of first a series of approaches to measurement, then the experimental design, and finally the communication of our findings. The results have been so personally rewarding that we would like to express our sincere appreciation to Dr. Joan Criswell and Dr. Howard Page of the Office of Naval Research for their continuous encouragement and guidance, and the more recent support of Mr. Luigi Petrullo. Although they are in no sense responsible for the shortcomings of this report, they have done much to facilitate its positive contributions.

We would also like to express our appreciation for the invaluable assistance we have received from our research assistants: Dr. William Sivers who served for the first two years of the project, and Dr. Roger Callahan who served for the last two years. We are grateful to the sizeable number of advanced graduate students in psychology and measurement who assisted in the collection and analysis of the data: F. O. Carleton, D. T. Donley, D. K. Hable, J. H. Hughes, J. de Jung, W. J. Meyer, T. J. Qualtere, M. L. Reichen-Gill, W. F. Reynolds, C. H. Hardesty-Sivers, Dr. C. D. Smock, H. O. Tothill, H. N. Wallace, Dr. N. E. Wallen, Dr. J. S. Weeks, and Mary K. Zughaib. We would also like to express appreciation for the generous aid of our Syracuse University faculty consultants: Dr. T. E. Denise of the Philosophy
