Dates of existence



Betty Flint was a psychologist and specialist in the field of infant development and early childhood education. Born in Toronto in 1920, she received her B.A. in 1944 and her M.A. in 1948, both from the University of Toronto. She was a faculty member at the Institute for Child Study (ICS) from 1948 to 1995. Her research focused on the security of infants and the subsequent development of children who as infants were deprived of early maternal care. Flint carried out detailed longitudinal studies over a thirty-year period on individual children who were institutionalized in the Neil McNeil Home in Toronto and published three books on her findings.
