Comment from a Colleague.

    I found in doing these genealogies over the years that virtually everyone in American psychology can trace their lineage back to William James, Wilhelm Wundt or Rudolph Hermann Lotze or if one wasn't to be hardnosed about what it takes to be called a psychologist in those days, Carl Stumpf.  By the way, since Hull was so greatly influenced by Pavlov, you can count him on the branch of your intellectual heritage as well. (Rand Evans, personal communication, 2006).
