Hugo Munsterberg

Hugo Münsterberg was a German psychologist and early pioneer of applied fields including industrial-organizational, forensic and clinical psychology. Münsterberg was studying medicine but after meeting Wilhelm Wunt, he turned his interest to the field of psychology.

William James later invited Münsterberg to take over the psychology lab at Harvard University, where he remained for three years before returning to Europe. He also served as the president of the American Psychological Association and taught a number of other prominent psychologists including Mary Whiton Calkins and Edward C. Tolman.

Münsterberg died on December 16, 1916 after suffering a massive cerebral hemorrhage right before he was set to deliver the opening remarks of a lecture at Harvard's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
