Florence L. Goodenough: Portrait of a Psychologist
Jolly, Jennifer L.
Roeper Review, v32 n2 p98-105 2010
Florence L. Goodenough is not a name immediately associated with gifted education. Although she studied under two of the field's most recognized pioneers, Leta S. Hollingworth and Lewis Terman, her initial work in gifted education did not evolve into the mainstay of her research. This work discusses her contributions to gifted education, work in the fields of psychology and child study, and role as mentor, teacher, and example to up-and-coming female psychologists.
