Titchener, Edward Bradford (11 January 1867–03 August 1927), psychologist and educator, was born in Chichester, Sussex, England, the son of Alice Field Habin and John Bradford Titchener. Titchener’s father died when he was quite young, but even before that Titchener was sent to live with his barrister grandfather Edward Titchener in Chichester, where he could get a good education. Titchener attended the Chichester Prebendal School and Malvern College before going to Brasenose College, Oxford. Titchener was considered the best of his generation at Brasenose. After graduation with a bachelor’s degree in 1889, he spent a year working in the experimental physiology laboratory of John Scott Burdon-Sanderson at Oxford. In 1890 he went to Germany to study experimental psychology in Wilhelm Wundt’s laboratory in Leipzig. Titchener received his Ph.D. there in 1892. He later received his M.A. and Sc.D. from Oxford because of his scholarly publications....
