Molly Harrower
Molly Harrower, a former University of Florida professor whose pioneering work in clinical psychology refined the testing of personality and stress tolerance, died Saturday at her home in Gainesville. She was 93.

Mrs. Harrower helped expand the use of the Rorschach test, commonly known as the ink blot test, by administering a group version she designed to Canadian armed forces recruits during World War II. She developed her own set of ink blot cards called the Harrower Blots, which, like the Rorschach test, were designed to reveal underlying personality structures of individuals through the figures they see in the blots.

She also developed a stress tolerance test that has been adapted to determine different kinds and levels of stress.

"She was one of the important giants in using the Rorschach test and diagnostic testing," said Mary McCaulley, a retired UF clinical psychology professor. "She was so insightful. She was still doing research and studies, and still had some publications in the last two or three years."

Mrs. Harrower was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to Gainesville in 1968.

Her route to psychology and UF was an unconventional one. Mrs. Harrower earned an academic diploma in psychology from London University. She then went to France on a scholarship to study dance and painting. There, she met the eccentric linguistic psychologist Charles Kay Ogden. She became associate editor of the journal "Psyche," which he edited.

Ogden recommended Mrs. Harrower to the late Gestalt psychologist Kurt Koffka, then at Smith College. Harrower went to work for Koffka and eventually earned a doctorate from Smith.

In 1937, Mrs. Harrower got funding from the Rockefeller Foundation to be an experimental psychologist in Montreal. Her work there led to the development of the Rorschach test.

Mrs. Harrower later worked in private practice, then as a psychologist with the U.S. State Department, the Surgeon General's Office and the Multiple Sclerosis Association.

She moved to Gainesville following the death of her husband, Mortimer Lahm, at the invitation of UF psychology professor Wilse Webb. She taught at UF until her retirement at the mandatory age of 70.

"She was a brilliant woman who was before her time," said Ann Page, a longtime friend. "She was a part of our family."

Hobbies included poetry, swimming, golf, music and tending her cats. She was a member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.

Expressions of sympathy may be made as donations to Hospice of North Central Florida or the Humane Society of Alachua County.
