Excerpt from Habit Formation in a Strain of Albino Rats of Less Than Normal Brain Weight: A Dissertation Submitted to the Board of University Studies of the Johns Hopkins University, in Conformity With the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

Before entering upon the body of this presentation I desire to express my obligations to those without whose co-operation my experiments would have been of less value.

Above all am I indebted to Professor John B.Watson, Director of the Johns Hopkins Psychological Laboratory, who has kept himself informed of the progress of my experimentation and who has been ready at all times with helpful suggestions and encouragement.

To Dr. Henry H.Donaldson I owe much: for suggesting the experiment; for placing the facilities and materials of the Wistar Institute at my disposal; for much helpful advice as to the evaluation of my results.

To Dr. Shinkishi Hatai for preparing the anatomical data referring to the rats used in my experiments.

To Dr. Helen D.King for keeping her sequences of inbreeding moving so perfectly that it was possible at any time to procure inbred rats of the desired age.
