Hello,

 

I was saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Harvey F. Clarizio.  Dr. Clarizio received his doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Illinois  after having earned a specialist degree  in school psychology from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Clarizio was director of  the specialist and doctoral programs in school psychology at Michigan State University for 33 years from 1966 until his retirement in 1999.  While at MSU Dr. Clarizio established a national and international reputation authoring or co-authoring more 23 textbooks including one of the first undergraduate/graduate  texts in the area of behavior Disorders in children in 1979  (with George McCoy) and a popular text applying learning theory to classroom discipline, Toward Positive Classroom Discipline,  in 1971. Dr. Clarizio also authored many educational articles on the topics of childhood depression and the gifted as well as serving as a consultant to many Michigan school districts, the Michigan Department of Education, and the Department of Defense international schools.  Dr. Clarizio also mentored countless students many who became leaders in our field including Susan Jacob and  Elaine Clark. . I was also fortunate to have worked closely with Dr. Clarizio at MSU when I was a doctoral student in school psychology in the mid-1970s. As a doctoral student I learned much from Dr. Clarizio. As his graduate assistant,  I learned about the process of producing  scholarship in our field  as during this time he was completing revisions of the two textbooks mentioned above.  In 1977,   I followed Dr. Clarizio’s  career path when I accepted my first university educator  position at  Illinois State University which represented his first academic position prior to moving to MSU.  I kept in contact with Harvey (which he explicitly asked me to refer to him after I received my degree)  after my graduation in 1976 but lost touch since his retirement. I am forever grateful for his mentorship and what he taught me about school psychology and being an academic.  Dr. Clarizio’s obituary can be found at https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/lsj/obituary.aspx?n=harvey-f-clarizio&pid=197364400&fhid=12964
