Dr. Marvin L. Simner retired after more than thirty years at Western University in London, Ontario. As a research psychologist throughout his academic career, his focus was on investigating many long held but rarely examined theories in the areas of School Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Psychological Testing. His research reports have appeared in peer-reviewed national and international journals. In 2007 he was made a Fellow of the Canadian Psychological Association and in 2007 he received the Member of the Year award from the Association. Since his retirement his focus has been on an examination of many equally long-standing beliefs in the fields of Canadian and American history.
