History of the Psychology Department at the University of Cincinnati

The Department of Psychology at the University of Cincinnati dates to the 1876-1877 school year. Wayland Richardson Benedict first offered psychology courses during this school year as part of the Philosophy department. Courses continued to be offered in the Philosophy department until the Spring of 1901 when the university established a Department of Experimental Psychology and Pedagogy under Professor Charles H. Judd.

During the early 20th century, the department experienced quite a bit of instability. The first three department heads stayed for only a short time. Judd left the University of Cincinnati after only one year. Margaret Floy Washburn, who took his place, expanded the course offerings by adding a course in folk psychology, a laboratory course, a history and systems of psychology course, and a developmental and educational psychology class, but also left UC after only a year. Her replacement, John Willis Slaughter added courses in comparative psychology and a graduate offering in the psychology of morality, art and religion, but his one-year contract was not renewed. The next department head, Burtis Burr Breese, brought stability and served on the faculty at UC for over 30 years. Breese instituted a new dedication to educational psychology. While Breese was department head other milestones were reached. Emma Kohnky earned the first graduate degree in psychology at UC when she received her MA in 1909. In 1922, Charles Diserens was awarded UC's first PhD in psychology and he was hired as an additional psychology faculty member.

The department continued to grow throughout the 1910s and 1920s with the addition of Dr. Ernest Lynn Talbert in 1914, and James Vaughn in 1928. Dr. Talbert was active in the Cincinnati Peace Society and prison reform movement in Cincinnati. Talbert House, an agency which provides services to individuals re-entering society following prison, was named for him.

With the retirement of Breese in 1937, Arthur Gilbert Bills became head of the Department of Psychology. Arthur Bills was responsible for developing one of the first clinical training program. During his tenure as head, 20 doctoral degrees were awarded and the department grew to eight full time faculty.

Today, the Department of Psychology is recognized nationally for the quality of its undergraduate major and the excellence of its graduate training programs in clinical and experimental psychology. Further information on the history of the Psychology Department is available on their website:
