Summary "This volume is the expression of the personal affection and scientific appreciation of Lightner Witmer. Written by a group of his former students, colleagues, and friends, it gives voice to the gratitude of all whom he has served in the founding and motivating of Clinical Psychology. Not the least of these are the many men, women, and children who have been aided in the development and adjustment of individual personality by the humanitarian efforts of this new branch of the modern science of Psychology. The papers written by invitation of the editor are the product of twenty-five of the former students of Lightner Witmer in the Department of Psychology and the Psychological Clinic. The authors, each of whom holds some position of responsibility, are recognized workers and authorities in the fields in which they have contributed. They are but representative of the many members of the new profession who owe their original instruction and inspiration to Witmer. In each and every field of activity to which any and all of the writers have applied the foundations of clinical psychology their success testifies to the original direction of Witmer's concepts, the great freedom of effort allowed them in research, continued advice and encouragement, with not infrequent contributions of new and leading ideas"--Introduction.
