In Memoriam:

Dr. Nicholas C. Cummings

The CCHP joins the psychology community in mourning the passing of Dr. Nicholas Cummings, a pioneering psychologist, advocate and philanthropist whose legacy influenced scholars worldwide. In 2014, Dr. Cummings and his wife, Dr. Dorothy “Dot” Mills Cummings, made a significant gift to The University of Akron resulting in the renaming of The Drs. Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Center for the History of Psychology. 

See full announcement.

Dr. Lewis P. Lipsitt

The Cummings Center is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Lewis P. Lipsitt. Lew, as he was affectionately known, was a member of the Cummings Center Advisory Board and a longtime friend of the Center. A distinguished scholar and educator in the field of child development and behavior, Lew’s pioneering work has helped us to better understand developmental outcomes related to a variety of conditions impacting infants and children.
