(1896–1981) psychologist; born in Lespedi, Romania. He came to the United States as a youth and was chief psychologist at New York City's Bellevue Hospital for 35 years. He devised a series of intelligence tests that became standard diagnostic tools, including the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Scale. In 1970 he began teaching at New York University's medical school, where he had been a clinical psychologist since World War II.
