a site devoted to a) psychobiography and b) writings by William Todd Schultz
February 9, 2013 § 2 Comments
Greetings Dr. Schultz, I am a graduate student in history fishing for a thesis topic and have an interest in psychology too. Thus the “psychohistory” union would seem natural in pursuing a topic and have funneled it down to pschobiography in scope. My sharper interest is presidential biography and character development, the information on Lincoln is vast (Clinton as well) although I would like to do something on Grant. The degree is in the American Military History concentration and initially considered a “life histories” review of all presidents with an extensive military background. That like this reply is a bit winded, hence Grant is probably enough with a second option of a cross analysis of Grant and Lee. Do you have any thoughts on how to approach a single person or a dual analysis of Grant and Lee?
Appreciate any thoughts and enjoy your woks,
William Siler Brooks
either idea sounds fabulous. you should check out my book, Handbook of Psychobiography. lots in it on method. and there’s even a chapter on dual psychobiography by kate mclean! good luck!
