Priority in the Classical Conditioning of Children.
Windholz, George; Lamal, P. A.
Teaching of Psychology, v13 n4 p192-95 Dec 1986
Contrary to widely held belief, Watons and Rayner's (1920) experiment with Little Albert is not first reported case of classical conditioning of a child. Their work was preceded by that of Bogen and of Krasnogorskii. Mateer's work either preceded or coincided with Watons and Rayner's. This article clarifies chronology of these early studies of classical conditioning with human subjects. (Author)
