Hide Profile

Consulting psychologist.

Horton was born in London in 1879 and received his early education in England, France, and Switzerland. After coming to America, his guardian, F.W. Holls, prepared him for entrance to Harvard, 1897, but upon the advice of Henry James Horton soon transferred to Williams College where he received his degree in 1901. He took his M.A., 1911, and Ph.D., 1922, at Columbia University. Horton's early work was with various railroads in a personnel capacity. He soon became interested in research in the fatigue and rest states and, ultimately, in dream psychology. During and following World War I, he studied shell shock and trench nightmare. Horton lectured and wrote widely on these subjects in addition to his consulting practice in Boston. He was the organizer of the Cartesian Research Bureau which evolved a precision method for the study of dreams. Horton is author of THE DREAM PROBLEM AND MECHANISM OF THOUGHT, 1925, and many articles in professional journals. Dr. Horton died January 19, 1945.
