Little Albert has been found!

Broach the topic with anyone who has taken General Psychology and they will quickly strike up a conversation about Little Albert. We all remember him as the baby who J.B. Watson conditioned to become fearful of benign-furry objects. For many decades the question has remained: Whatever happened to little Albert? For the past ten years Dr. Skip Beck has been investigating this question with fascinating results. The culmination of his research will be published in the next edition of American Psychologist. The department is truly proud and congratulates Dr. Beck on this achievement that will no doubt shape how we view the history of Little Albert.
