Gustav Jahoda, Early Founder of Cross-Cultural Psychology, Dead at 96

Gustav Jahoda died in Glasgow at age 96. He was among the earliest cross-cultural psychologists in modern times, participating in the seminal Ibadan, Nigeria conference in 1967. His final address to IACCP was in Spetses, Greece in 2006.

From Harry Triandis' autobiography:

The [Ibadan] conference was organized by Herb Kelman and Henri Tajfel. The latter did not come because he was already sick. I met many well-known cross-cultural social psychologists such as Otto Kleinberg, M. Brewster Smith, Alastair Heron, Gustav Jahoda, Alastair Mundy Castle, Douglass Price-Williams, and Rogelio Diaz-Guerrero.

Gustav supplied this photo of himself doing fieldwork in West Africa to the Cross-Cultural Psychology Bulletin many years ago.
