A Pilot Study of Scientists Retired 1960 Through 1963.
This study sought the answer to the question, "What do retired scientists do?" A questionnaire was mailed to scientists who had a Ph.D. or equivalent and who had retired from the staffs of 76 universities from 1960 to 1963. It was designed to inquire into the following: (1) reactions and adjustment to retirement; (2) criteria for a job for a retired scientist; (3) conditions for retirement; (4) occupations after retirement; (5) self estimations of health and intellectual functioning; (6) career background; (7) present living situation; and (8) suggestions and advice for others contemplating retirement. The returns were analyzed by computer and the findings, on all eight aspects, were discussed and summarized. (TL)
