Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Tuesday, September 13, 1988 12 The Accu-Weatrier forecast for 6 PM, Tuesday, September 13 Hi BRIEF 70 SHOWERS) OBITUARIES Psychologist Margaret B. McFarland By Carmen J. Lee Post-Gazette Start Writer Margaret B. McFarland, 83, a child psychologist whom children's show host Fred Rogers called "the most major influence in my professional life," died yesterday in Country Meadows Nursing Home in South Fayette after a long illness. Highly regarded and recognized in the fields of child development, education and psychology, Miss McFarland was as well known for the care and concern she brought to her work as for her many accomplishments. "She was so other-directed that when you were in her presence, you felt you were important," Rogers said. "For Margaret, the critical element in teaching really was love," said the Rev. Douglas Nowicki, secretary of education for the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh and a clinical child psychologist. "For her, real learning could only take place in the context of love. She believed that if a child doesn't sense that the teacher cares for him or her, then that child will not be able to learn very much." Originally from Oakdale, Miss McFarland's many accomplishments included co-founding the Arsenal Family and Children's Center with Dr. Benjamin Spock and Erik Erikson in 1953 and serving as its director until 1971. She and Spock also helped establish the department of child development and child care within the psychiatry department of the University of Pittsburgh's School of Medicine in the early 1950s. The Pittsburgh Foundation included both programs among the 40 events that shaped Pittsburgh's first Renaissance. A 1927 graduate of Goucher College who earned master's and doctorate degrees at Columbia University in 1928 and 1938, respectively, Miss McFarland was an associate professor of psychology in the psychiatry department from 1951 through 1975 and became associate professor emeritus in 1976. The department is now part of the university's School of Social Work. Nancy Curry, a professor at the school, said Miss McFarland was nationally known for her teaching and consulting. "She was a once-in-a-lifetime teacher. Anyone who had her for a teacher would not have forgotten her," she said. "She was extremely knowledgeable and sensitive in the area of parent-child relationships. She was a very keen observer." Rogers said his 30-year professional relationship with Miss McFarland began in the 1950s when he was Food for thought: Press & P-G Want Ad Results. 001 Death Notices 001 Death Notices BAUMGARTNER On Sunday, Sept. 11 1988 Helen M.
