Biographical/Historical Information

Martin Philip Chworsky was born on 28 January 1900, in San Antonio, Texas. In 1922, he matriculated from Harvard, spending the next four years at the Harvard Law School. He received his LLB in 1926 but never practiced law. He began his teaching career in a Connecticut secondary school and remained in the field of education for the rest of his life. He became a lecturer in education at the University of Pittsburgh in 1931. While at the University of Pittsburgh he earned his Master's degree in 1934 and his Ph.D. in 1936.

From 1939 to 1946, Dr Chworsky was an associate professor of psychology and education at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. He left this post to work for two years as the associate director of the Commission on Educational Organization of the National Conference of Christians and Jews.
