Mary Ainsworth I chose to write about Mary Ainsworth and her contribution to psychology as well as the attachment theory. I feel that female Psychologists do not get as much recognition. Mary Ainsworth was born December 1913 in Glendale, Ohio (Cherry 2014). She first became interested in Psychology when she was 15 years of age after reading Character and the Conduct of Life by William McDougall. Mary attended the University of Toronto where she was in the Psychology honors program. She worked up earning her degrees until she eventually got her Ph. D in 1939. Mary joined the Canadian Women’s Army Corps in 1942 after teaching at the University of Toronto for several years. She got married to Leonard Ainsworth in 1950.
