    • Harry Singer, Education: Riverside 1925-1988 Professor
    • Harry Singer was a native of Cleveland, Ohio, where he grew up in a Jewish family of modest means.  On September 4, 1925, he was the second of three sons. The family's economic plight during the depression years required the boys to engage in even more part-time employment than was typical of youth in the neighborhood. 
    • After attending the public schools of Cleveland, Harry entered Case Western Reserve University in 1945 as a psychology major.  Harry's keen intelligence and tenacity enabled him to work his way through college, completing his B.S. degree in psychology in 1949. 
    •  Having impressed his college instructors, Harry stayed on at Western Reserve, and by 1952 completed his M.A. degree, also in psychology  Following two years of elementary school teaching in Oakland, Harry plunged into graduate study, completing the Ph.D. in educational psychology under Professor Holmes in 1960
    •  Award for Research and Distinguished Service to that organization in 1984. Among his other awards were the Albert J. Harris Award for an article, “IQ is and is not related to reading,” presented by the International Reading Association in 1975.
    • With his close and long time colleague Irving Balow, Harry became the first faculty recipient of the University of California's Presidential Research Awar.d for School Improvement.  His major publications were his books, beginning with Speed and Power of Reading in High School with his mentor Jack Holmes in 1966. 
    • Singer became known during the middle and late 1960s for their “substrata-factor theory of reading,” a controversial theory which aroused considerable interest among reading scholars of the day.  Harry frequently differentiated between “teaching his colleagues” and “teaching students.” Those of us who co-authored works with him, including all of the undersigned, could add that he also rather enjoyed teaching his co-authors 
    •  By 1970 Singer and Robert Ruddell, his Berkeley colleague, compiled the leading theoretical orientations to their field in one major book. Published as Theoretical Models and Processes of Reading, the book went through three editions over a 15year period. It remains the single most impressive guide to reading theory in the English language.
    •  Harry Singer will be remembered for his intellect, for his intensity, and for his warmth and caring of close friends and graduate students
