This is an somewhat arbitary annotated list of autobiographies of interest to psychologists.

  • Marietta Hartley - An American character actress whose maternal grandfather was psychologist John B. Watson (through Watson’s daughter from his first marriage). In her 1990 autobiography Breaking the Silence, written with Anne Commire, talked about her struggles with psychological problems, pointing directly at Watson’s practical application of his theories as the source of the dysfunction in his family. She has also spoken in public about her experience of bipolar disorder, and was a founder of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.[1] In 2009, Hartley spoke at a suicide and violence prevention forum about her father's suicide.[2]
