First Edition, xi, 442pp royal octavo, a very good copy in original cloth, INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY from the Author, New York, Norton, 1934. * Comprehensive applications of scientific management and industrial psychology to the factory and workplace. Morris Viteles (1898 - 1996) was among the early pioneers of the industrial psychology movement in the United States was, born in Russia on March 21, 1898. Viteles entered the University of Pennsylvania in 1915 and although he majored in history, he credited much of his later interest in industrial psychology to his historical studies of work and labor organizations. Under the guidance of Lightner Witmer, whom he credits with fuelling his love of industrial psychology, he earned his master's in 1919, and his PhD in 1921, at the age of 23. The university's psychology department was largely experimental and also emphasized individual differences, which further spurred Viteles' interest in industrial psychology, as did the department's focus on the individual as a whole. Outside of the university, Viteles credits three events with influencing his decision to practice industrial psychology. The first of these three field opportunities was in 1919 with the Federal Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, and the second came in the form of participation in a study group on vocational guidance. Together, these two experiences led Viteles to found the Vocational Guidance Clinic in 1921. Viteles continued as director of the clinic until the late 1950s, although his interest in the field began to wane in the late 1930s, in favor of industrial psychology. The third of these opportunities was a 1920 research project that Viteles conducted for the Naval Aircraft Factory at the United States naval shipyard in Philadelphia. Also in 1920, Viteles received his first job offer as a paid consultant. The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Company hired Viteles to develop and validate a selection instrument for streetcar motormen, which would later be known as the Viteles Motorman Selection Test and used for many years to come. It was also at this job that Viteles conducted pioneering job analysis work in developing his job psychograph method which would also be widely used. N° de ref. de la librería 24097
