Frank Findings: Frank Parsons and the Parson Family
Briddick, William C.
Career Development Quarterly, v57 n3 p207-214 Mar 2009
The historical portrait of Frank Parsons in terms of his early years and family life has endured considerable speculation based on limited information. At the 100th anniversary of his death, new information has emerged to refute some of the widely held claims about Parsons and his family life. It is time to move beyond the confines of secondary sources to primary sources of information about Parsons. The legacy of Parsons deserves a more thorough and accurate examination.
