Harry Frederick Harlow (October 31 1905 – December 6 1981) was an American psychologist best known for his maternal-separation dependency needs and social isolation experiments on rhesus monkeys which manifested the importance of caregiving and companionship to social and cognitive development. He conducted most of his research at the University of Wisconsin–Madison where humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow worked with him for a short period of time. Harlow’s experiments were controversial; they included creating inanimate surrogate mothers for the rhesus infants from wire and wool. Each infant became attached to its particular mother recognizing its unique face and preferring it above others. Harlow next chose to investigate if the infants had a preference for bare-wire mothers or cloth-covered mothers. For this experiment he presented the infants with a clothed “mother” and a wire “mother” under two conditions. In one situation the wire mother held a bottle with food and the cloth mother held no food. In the other situation the cloth mother held the bottle and the wire mother had nothing. Also later in his career he cultivated infant monkeys in isolation chambers for up to 24 months from which they emerged intensely disturbed. Some researchers cite the experiments as a factor in the rise of the animal liberation movement in the United States. A Review of General Psychology survey published in 2002 ranked Harlow as the 26th most cited psychologist of the 20th century.

Harry Harlow was born on October 31 1905 to Mabel Rock and Alonzo Harlow Israel. Harlow was born and raised in Fairfield Iowa the third of four brothers. After a year at Reed College in Portland Oregon Harlow obtained admission to Stanford University through a special aptitude test. After a semester as an English major with nearly disastrous grades he declared himself as a psychology major.

Harry Harlow was born on October 31 1905 to Mabel Rock and Alonzo Harlow Israel. Harlow was born and raised in Fairfield Iowa the third of four brothers. After a year at Reed College in Portland Oregon Harlow obtained admission to Stanford University through a special aptitude test. After a semester as an English major with nearly disastrous grades he declared himself as a psychology major. Harlow attended Stanford in 1924 and subsequently became a graduate student in psychology working directly under Calvin Perry Stone a well-known animal behaviorist and Walter Richard Miles a vision expert who were all supervised by Lewis Terman . Harlow studied largely under Terman the developer of the Stanford-Binet IQ Test and Terman helped shape Harlow’s future. After receiving a PhD in 1930 Harlow changed his name from Israel to Harlow. The change was made at Terman’s prompting for fear of the negative consequences of having a seemingly Jewish last name even though his family was not Jewish. Directly after completing his doctoral dissertation Harlow accepted a professorship at the University of Wisconsin–Madison . Harlow was unsuccessful in persuading the Department of Psychology to provide him with adequate laboratory space. As a result Harlow acquired a vacant buildin…
