Prof. Raymond Dodge.
Deceased Name: Raymond Dodge
Tryon, N. C., April 8 [Special]. -- Raymond Dodge, 71 years old, professor emeritus of psychology at Yale university, and discoverer of the fundamental law of visual perception in reading, died today. He has been living here since his retirement in 1936. Prof. Dodge discovered that the eye doesn't glide smoothly over printed characters, but proceeds in short jumps with a pause of about one-third of a second after each jump. His findings in the field of eye movement have contributed to improvement of the teaching of reading.
