Harold Kelley (February 16, 1921 - January 29, 2003) was an American social psychologist and professor of psychology at the
University of California, Los Angeles. His major contributions have been the development of interdependence theory (with John
Thibaut), the early work of attribution theory, and a lifelong interest in understanding close relationships processes. A
"Review of General Psychology" survey, published in 2002, ranked Kelley as the 43rd most cited psychologist of the 20th century
at that time. (Source: wikipedia; accessed 11 September 2015)
