1922  Joseph V. Brady was born. Brady's work in behavioral biology includes well-known studies of ulcers in "executive monkeys" and the selective effects of reserpine on anxiety responses. He later applied experimental methods to problems of space flight and the prevention of drug abuse. APA Distinguished Scientific Award for Applications of Psychology, 1991. 
1927  Charles D. Spielberger was born. Spielberger's research has focused on anxiety, curiosity, the expression and control of anger, and stress management. His State-Trait Anxiety Inventory has been widely used in treatment and research. APA President, 1991. 
1934  George Sperling was born. Sperling contributed to the fields of visual information processing and attention. He studied short-term visual persistence, the modeling of binocular vision, mechanisms and limitations of high-speed visual search, and the nature of attentional limits in visual perception.
