Robert Havighurst, "American Education in the 1960's," 1964
Lecture or Presentation Date:
Robert James Havighurst (June 5, 1900 – January 31, 1991) was a professor, physicist, educator, and expert on aging. Both his father, Freeman Alfred Havighurst, and mother, Winifred Weter Havighurst, had been educators at Lawrence University. Havighurst worked and published well into his 80s. Havighurst died of Alzheimer's disease in January 1991 in Richmond, Indiana at the age of 90. In this address, Havighurst emphasizes the importance of education as it is tied to greater society. Education, claims Havighurst, should evolve and change fluidly over time, along with changes in society at large, rather than remaining static and aloof from the world around it.
