Baldwin, James Mark

James Mark Baldwin is perhaps best known for the founding of the American Psychological Association and for his great contributions to the psychology world. He was born in Columbia, South Carolina, and went to college at the College of New Jersey (now known as Princeton). Baldwin was also educated abroad in Germany. With the help of some colleagues, he founded the magazine Psychological Review, which is still in publication today. He educated psychologists all over the world with his writing career which stretched from 1896 to 1913 with such books as: Mental Developments in the Child and the Race, Social and Ethnic Interpretations, Individual and Society, and History of Psychology. From 1909 to 1913, he sat as president of the International Congress of Psychology. His career is marked by his great ability to communicate and his different views of psychology.

His brilliant psychological career ended in 1934, when he died at the age of 72.
