Paul M. Muchinsky was born and raised in Connecticut. He received his B.A. degree in psychology from Gettysburg College, his M.S. degree in psychology from Kansas State University, and his Ph.D. degree in industrial/organizational psychology from Purdue University. He was a faculty member of Iowa State University for twenty years. In 1993 he was appointed the Joseph M. Bryan Distinguished Professor of Business at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
In 2004 Dr. Muchinsky was the inaugural recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Contribution Award from the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology for his outstanding educational contributions to the ﬁeld. In 2008 Dr. Muchinsky was awarded the honorary Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) degree from Gettysburg College. He is a Fellow of four divisions of the American Psychological Association: the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology; the Society for the Teaching of Psychology; the Society of Consulting Psychology; and the Society of Counseling Psychology. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Professional Psychology (in industrial/organizational psychology) and a licensed psychologist. Sadly, Dr. Muchinsky passed away on September 8, 2015 from complications of a lung disease. He was only 68. His proudest career achievement was his textbook, Psychology Applied to Work®, which is currently in its 11th edition. Ever the consummate professional to predict what might be, he took on a co-author for the first time. Dr. Satoris Culbertson, Tori, was more than he could have hoped for. He had said the three things that could make or break the merging of these two wonderful authors were: 1) do it (write); 2) do it well; and 3) be timely. And Tori did not disappoint Paul or Hypergraphic Press.
