UCLA Professor as of 2002.
Kelley’s writings focused on areas such as the concept of "stimulus field." The stimulus field is theorized to play a role in understanding common thought and language. A stimulus field specifies the psychophysical reality. In one of his articles, Kelley proposes that cognition about interpersonal phenomena is adapted to the stimulus field of those phenomena. Therefore, our understanding of the relevant thoughts and language specify and take account of that reality. Kelley’s theory helps us understand some of the facts about the cognition of interpersonal phenomena. It highlights the abstract level at which interpersonal events are often viewed and identifies advantages and disadvantages of such thought. It suggests the terms in which schematic representations of interpersonal relations are cast. It suggests the bases in the stimulus field for the distinctions that people make between "person," 'situation," and 'interaction" and for the differentiations they make within each of those categories.
1992 (Spring) Harold H. Kelley "The Logic of Interpersonal Relations"
Harold H. Kelley, professor emeritus of
psychology at UCLA and a distinguished pioneer and contributor to the
field of social psychology, died on Jan. 29 of cancer at his home in
Malibu, Calif. He was 81.
Kelley’s major contributions to psychological research include the study of the role of reference groups in communication and attitude change, the establishment (with John W. Thibaut) of interdependence theory, the early integration of various lines of work into what has become known as “attribution theory,” and the application of interdependence concepts to the phenomena of close relationships.
Most recently, he was the lead author (with several co-writers) of “An Atlas of Interpersonal Situations.” Another volume, “Interdependence Theory: Situations, Relationships and Personality,” co-authored with John W. Holmes, is in the final stages of preparation.
Born in Boise, Idaho, in 1921, Kelley was 10 when his family moved to Delano, Calif., where his father established a vineyard. It was there that he met and married his high school sweetheart, Dorothy, his companion for 61 years.
In 1943, Kelley received his Master of Arts degree in psychology from UC Berkeley. He then served in the Aviation Psychology Program of the Army Air Corps until entering MIT in 1946. After completing his Ph.D. at the Research Center for Group Dynamics (under the direction of Dorwin Cartwright) in 1948, he moved with the center to the University of Michigan. Kelley then served successively on the psychology faculties there, at Yale and at the University of Minnesota before he accepted a professorship in the Department of Psychology at UCLA in 1961.
Kelley, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the National Academy of Sciences, retired in 1991 but remained fully involved in his scholarly career until his recent illness.
A memorial program for Kelley was held at UCLA on Feb. 9. In lieu of flowers, contributions should be sent to the “Harold H. Kelley Social Psychology Memorial Fund” in the Department of Psychology, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1563. (Checks would be written to “UC Regents” with that indication.)
