We have more great additions to our Digital Collections, as we near closer to our 100 collections milestone. Here are our latest collections currently available.
David Allen Hills was a professor of psychology at Wake Forest University. He received his bachelor’s degree in English at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, and his doctorate in psychology from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and was stationed in Germany. He joined the WFU faculty in 1960, teaching in the Department of Psychology and working in the counseling center and administration. During his 36 years at Wake Forest, Dr. Hills also worked with the Department of Neuropsychology at Bowman Gray (now Wake Forest) School of Medicine. He was also a cartoonist for many publications. He passed away on March 22, 2007.
