Many scholars, including B.F. Skinner, Fred S. Keller, Don M. Baer and   O. Ivar Lovaas, have contributed to a scientific approach to understanding and changing behavior: Behavior Analysis.

This website describes the intellectual journeys of some of the behavior analysts and events that constitute the field's history. Anyone who has documents, pictures, interviews or other materials on the history of behavior analysis is invited to add to this collection of electronic memories.


We invite you to explore the following sections and then join the History Team.
