Recognising the work of Alec Rodger
Alec Rodger had a profound influence on British psychology. He was Reader in Psychology at Birkbeck College in the University of London from 1948 to 1960, and then Professor of Occupational Psychology until he retired in 1975 and was made Professor Emeritus.
Alec Rodger developed undergraduate and postgraduate courses in occupational psychology, and he continued to seize and to create every opportunity he could for his staff and his students. For much of his time he also worked strenuously for The British Psychological Society. He was Honorary General Secretary for a long period and President in 1957-58. Alec Rodger also edited Occupational Psychology from 1946 to 1968, facilitating the progress to a journal of international stature.
