AND SEXUAL ADJUSTMENT
Emily Mudd, Ph.D.
EMILY HARTSHORNE MUDD, who took an active part in the Kinsey studies as one of the five consulting editors for the Report on Women, is one of the country's outstanding marriage counselors. She is director of the Marriage Council of Philadelphia, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School, and President of the American Association of Marriage Counselors.
Dr. Mudd is married to Dr. Stuart Mudd, the eminent microbiologist, one of whose discoveries led to the development of blood plasma, and they have four children. It was after her marriage, when she became active as a part-time worker in agencies like the YWCA, maternal health centers, parents' councils, etc., that Emily Mudd began her career in the social work field. Then she got together with community leaders in Philadelphia who were interested in forming a marriage counseling service. Later it turned out that, as an outstanding wife and mother, Dr. Mudd was chosen for the job of director, instead of a professional social worker. She returned to college as she approached middle age, and didn't actually become Dr. Mudd until recently, when she got her doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. Today she works full time, running the marriage council, lecturing, and teaching at the University.
