Dr. W. H. R. Rivers, F.R.S


DR. WILLIAM HALE RIVERS RIVERS, whose death occurred on June 4 at the age of fifty-eight years, came to Cambridge, at the invitation of Sir Michael Foster, in October 1893, to lecture on the psychology of the senses, and was made University lecturer in physiological and experimental psychology in December 1897; these two subjects were separated in 1907, when Rivers was made lecturer in the physiology of the senses. By this time he had established the Cambridge School of Experimental Psychology, which has produced many distinguished psychologists.
