Jack Michael's Appointments at the University of Houston and Arizona State University: Reflections from a Former Student
Mabry, John H.
Analysis of Verbal Behavior, v32 n2 p324-335 Oct 2016
Jack Michael was an early enthusiast for what is now called applied behavior analysis. His many seminal contributions were through early publications in applied behavior analysis and the work of the students he trained (e.g., T. Ayllon, M. M. Wolf). His close mentorship of students earned him acclaim as a teacher along with his many theoretical contributions to the literatures on verbal behavior and motivation, and behavior analysis in general. This paper is a series of personal reflections about Michael's time and contributions at the University of Houston and Arizona State University, which preceded his lengthy tenure at Western Michigan University, where he spent the remainder of his career and is now an emeritus professor.
