 Person

Biography

Charles Samuel Myers (1873-1946), psychologist, was born in London on 13 March 1873. He attended the City of London School, and entered Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, in 1891, becoming a Fellow in 1919. In 1898 he joined the Cambridge anthropological expedition to the Torres Straits, where he carried out experimental studies on the sensory reactions of the natives and studied their music. He returned to Cambridge in 1902, and was demonstrator in experimental psychology, 1904-1907, and university lecturer and reader, 1907-1930. He was also Professor of Experimental Psychology at King's College, London, 1906-1909. Myers moved to London in 1922, becoming principal of the National Institute of Industrial Psychology, which he had founded with H.J. Welch in 1921, and devoted himself to its development. He died at Winsford Glebe, Somerset, on 12 October 1946.
