Marvin Snider

Course Leader Bio

I have a PhD in psychology and have practiced both as a clinician and an organizational consultant. I have led many courses on diverse topics at the Harvard Life Learning Program, including courses on International Hotspots, Innovators of Political Thought, Cults, and Elections. At LLAIC, I have led courses on George Washington, Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Teddy Roosevelt, Hamilton, Truman, Johnson, FDR, Nixon, JFK, Meir, Albright, Brandeis, and Einstein. These courses on presidents and other accomplished people are approached with emphasis on understanding their personality and accomplishments, why they did what they did, and the impact they had.
