Biographical / Historical

Lynn Fox received her PhD in Educational Psychology from Johns Hopkins University in 1974. As a doctoral student, she studied under and worked with Julian Stanley, Johns Hopkins University Professor of Psychology and the creator of the Study for Mathematically Precocious Youth, a precursor to the Center for Talented Youth. After receiving her PhD, Fox founded and directed the Intellectually Gifted Child Study Group in the Johns Hopkins University Evening College, where she created a graduate program for teachers in gifted education and conducted research related to gender differences (and, later, learning disabilities) and giftedness. Fox received tenure from Johns Hopkins University in 1981 but left in 1985 for American University, where she taught and served as Dean of the School of Education until retiring in 2015.
