Harriet Nerlove Mischel ’58

Harriet, one of the first women to be awarded at clinical psychology Ph.D. from Harvard rather than Radcliffe, died Sept. 13, 2018.

At Swarthmore, Harriet worked with pioneering social psychologist Solomon Asch on children’s development of understanding of metaphor. She was a faculty member in Stanford’s psychology department for more than 15 years before moving to New York, where she started a clinical therapist practice and joined the faculty of New York Presbyterian Hospital.
