James McKeen Cattell--public interest

greenspun.com : LUSENET : History & Theory of Psychology : One Thread

I'm interested in any papers or books on the public interest of James McKeen Cattell. I have the references from Boring and Heidbreder, as well as Man of Science and An Education in Psychology by Cattell. If you know of other books or papers please write to me directly at tobach@amnh.org. Thank you.
