Biography and History

In 1932, Harwood L. Childs came to Princeton to teach and research public opinion, then an uncharted academic field. Childs founded and edited the Public Opinion Quarterly, which in a relatively short time became one of the most prestigious journals in the field of politics. With his colleague, international law specialist John B. Whitton, Childs co-authored propaganda abroad by short wave programs during World War II.
