In Memoriam: Psychology Professor Dr. Laurence Horowitz Passes Away

A message from Psychology Department Chair, Geri Olson:

It is with a great deal of sadness to inform the community that Dr. Laurence Horowitz passed away this week. Larry came to the Psychology Department in 1969 and retired in 1992. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1958 where he studied with Albert Bandura. He developed the Psychology of Family and Gestalt classes for the department and he organized and upgraded the internship model that we still use in the department. A long time community activist, he spent numerous hours of volunteer time counseling and working on community affairs, from the Viet Nam War era well into his retirement . Many of us remember his delightful wife Virginia, an early innovator of dance and movement modalities. We extend out deepest sympathy to his children Neena and Paul, and to his extended family and friends.
