488: Mary Whiton Calkins
Born: 30 March 1863, Hartford, Connecticut, United States of America
Died: 26 February 1930, Wellesley, Massachusetts, United States of America
Mary earned her degree from Harvard but even now they refuse to grant her the degree that she earned because Harvard didn’t technically admit women at the time.
She wrote over one hundred papers concerning philosophy and psychology and ran one of the first psychological laboratories in the United States.
