Geissler's Association with the Journal of Applied Psychology
1. In unpublished autobiographical notes (1920), Geissler wrote that he "founded" the Journal of Applied Psychology "with the aid of" Hall and Baird." Geissler also described himself in one place as the "Managing Editor" and in other places as having the "Chief-Editorship."
2. Hall's autobiography mentioned Geissler as a co-founder and did not mention Baird.
3. In Introduction to first issue, it is noted, "The journal is privately financed by the three editors." (p. 2) The editors were listed in the order of Hall, Baird, and Geissler with no distinctions in their titles.
4. However, on page 3 in the Introduction, it is clear that most editorial duties will be performed by Geissler.
5. In first issue:
Geissler: "What is applied psychology?"
Hall: "Practical relations between psychology and the war."
Baird: "The legibility of a telephone directory."
