An online collection of a selection of presentations by the late
M. Powell Lawton, Ph.D. is now available on the
AccessPA Digital Repository. These documents represent presentations that
Dr. Lawton made throughout his career at conferences for researchers on aging. The principles Dr. Lawton developed in his
studies in environmental psychology influenced design innovations in nursing homes, special dementia units, and
community-based programs all over the world. The planning and implementation were partially funded with federal
Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds administered by the Pennsylvania Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
