"Sven Froeberg"

Sven Froeberg (1880-1966) had received his graduate training at Columbia University under James McKeen Cattell, Robert S. Woodworth and Edward L. Thorndike taking his doctorate degree in 1908.30 He taught at Uppsala College (New Jersey) for seven years when he received the offer to come to Michigan as an instructor. Froeberg
remained at Michigan only two years during which time he taught the quiz sections for the introductory
courses, supervised some of the laboratory work and introduced work in the methods of mental and
social measurements. This latter course was the first offered by the sub-department that dealt with the
statistical procedures used to analyze psychological, educational, and social problems. Topics such as
variable measurement, measurement of changes, correlation, reliability, tabular, frequency and graphic
methods were covered. Froeberg left Ann Arbor in 1917 for Pennsylvania State College (1917-1918)
