  N.B.: Tolman received his PhD under both Holt and Münsterberg, with Holt primary; although Jastrow supervised Hull's doctoral thesis, Hull identified Henmon as his mentor in graduate school; Campbell received his under both Tryon and Jones; and Simonton received his under both Kenny and McClelland, with Kenny the supervisor of his thesis and his Harvard mentor.
