Vincent V. Herr, S.J. in his office




This exhibition celebrates the research of Professor Vincent V. Herr, S.J. (1901-1970) at Loyola University Chicago in the mid-20th century. He made innovative contributions to experimental, clinical, and social psychology and impactful efforts to increase understanding of the role of psychology in religious communities. Herr's original research merits reconsideration.


Dr. Marjorie Lorch, Professor of Neurolinguistics at Birkbeck, University of London, created this digital exhibit with the assistance of Loyola University Archivist Kathy Young in March 2023. It is based on the Vincent V. Herr, S.J., papers. The project was supported by a career development award to Dr. Lorch from the Birkbeck Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund.
