Walter Van Dyke Bingham Fellowship in Psychology


Awarded to graduating seniors majoring in psychology who will pursue graduate work in that field of study. Established through a bequest of Millicent Todd Bingham in memory of her husband, whose life work was inspired by his undergraduate days at Beloit. Walter Van Dyke Bingham, class of 1901 and a Beloit faculty member from 1901 to 1904, is considered the father of industrial psychology. He is particularly known for devising the battery of psychological tests and interview procedures used to screen draftees in World Wars I and II. He also established America’s first department of applied psychology (Carnegie Institute, 1915).
