Philosopher, Educator, Psychologist. He was one of the developers of the present I.Q. test. At first he developed his own test, but when he got acquainted with the Binet-Simon test, he (with H.G. Childs) found out that the scores for American children on the latter was inflated for younger children, and deflated for older children. They later developed the revision of the Binet test, now the Stanford-Binet test. He was the father of the "Father of Silicon Valley," Frederick E. Terman. (bio by: Bona Rae Villarta)
