Albert T. Poffenberger's 92 years, from October 23, 1885, to December 24, 1977, paralleled the emergence and shaping of psychology as a science, both pure and applied. He himself did much to influence its development by his scholarship and service. His quiet, modest effectiveness was crucially important at Columbia University and in many other organizations, including the APA, where he filled official roles. His character was truly unforgettable and touched everyone who met him. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
