Beth Parkinson


Beth worked with the Project from 1981 to 1985, during its inception, pilot phase, and the early phases of data collection. She designed study methods and instruments and helped train undergraduates as interviewers. Perhaps most importantly, however, Beth was struck with the inspiration to name the project by the acronym "PAIR"!

Beth now resides in Greenville, Pennsylvania, where she is a psychology professor at Thiel College.
