ABSTRACT
The article profiles sociologist G. Stanley Hall. He was born in a little town in Massachusetts, back in 1846. In April, 1914, he died in a larger town in Massachusetts. He founded the "American Journal of Psychology." Despite heavy losses within the first few years Hall was encouraged later to start other journals, The Pedagogical Seminary, the Journal of Applied Psychology and The Journal of Religious Psychology. As a lecturer and teacher Hall accepted the necessity of giving his audiences something that they could use. He recognized also the need of being interesting, and he was enough of an opportunist to seize on issues close to the hearts of his hearers. In his popular lectures he was more tactful and considerate of the feelings of his audience than when in the classroom. He would tell the truth to his audiences, but sometimes only as much of the truth as he felt they could safely assimilate. In the classroom, however he assumed, or appeared to assume, that he was in a company of equals, each and everyone intent upon the pursuit of knowledge.
