  • Kenneth Clark (b. 1914), the first African-American president of the American Psychological Association, whose studies (with his wife Mamie Phipps Clark) played an important role in the famous 1954 supreme court case (Brown v. Board of Education) that paved the way for the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
  • Lillian Moller Gilbreth (1878-1972), mother of 12 and the first person ever to receive a Ph.D. in Industrial Psychology. She was a groundbreaker in the field of ergonomics.
