Robert Johnston Niven Professor of Humane Letters


Senior Member
I have this:
"Walter Mischel was born in Austria, but emigrated with his family to the USA in 1938. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York, receiving his PhD in clinical psychology from Ohio State University in 1956. He then went on to teach at the Universities of Colorado, Harvard, and Stanford, moving in 1983 to Columbia University in New York City, where he is the Robert Johnston Niven Professor of Humane Letters."

When I research online the maximum I get is:
"Walter Mischel holds the Robert Johnston Niven chair as professor of humane letters in psychology at Columbia University"

Is this "Robert Johnston Niven" some section in the Department of Psychology of the university?
I am getting lost here...
