Lehigh faculty to showcase research at 2019 SRCD

Society for Research in Child Development | March 21-23, 2019

The field of child development received formal recognition in 1922-23 through the appointment of a subcommittee on Child Development of the National Research Council. In 1925, under the direction of Robert S. Woodworth, an eminent experimental psychologist, this group became the Committee in Child Development with offices and staff in the National Academy of Sciences. The purpose of the committee was to integrate research activities and to stimulate research in child development. The committee awarded fellowships, initiated conferences, and began publications. In 1927, 425 scientists were listed in the Directory of Research in Child Development and that same year the first volume of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography was published. In 1933 the Committee on Child Development disbanded and passed the torch to the newly organized Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD).
