Abstract

David Pablo Boder was born in Liban, Latvia, Russia on November 9, 1886. He studied at the Institute of Neuropsychology at St. Petersburg (now Leningrad) until 1912 and then directed adult education in the trans-Siberian railway system. He traveled to our country and registered at the School of Higher Studies of the National University, in Dr. Enrique O. Aragón’s psychology course in 1920 and 1921. He later worked as assistant in Dr. Aragón’s laboratory of experimental psychology; during this time he worked actively in the translation and adaptation to Mexico of several mental tests, while in charge of the Section of Psychotechnics and Probation of the Government of the Federal District. In particular, it is important his adaptation of Binet-Simon-Terman intelligence scale. In 1926 he immigrated to the United States and remained until 1952 in the city of Chicago where he was researcher and professor of the Technological Institute of Chicago. On retirement as emeritus professor he moved to Los Angeles, California as associate investigator until his death in 1961. Boder’s stay in Mexico spanned only about seven years, but during this short time he developed an important and vigorous professional activity that influenced the development of Mexican psychology in the second decade of this century.
