Summary

This volume traces the progress of the men and women in the Terman Study of the Gifted through the years of later maturity, when most of them were in their sixties and seventies. In the process, it provides unique insights into the determinants of successful aging. The study - the longest life cycle study in the history of the social sciences - was begun in 1921 by Lewis M. Terman of Stanford University, when the intellectually gifted subjects averaged eleven years of age. This is the fifth in a series of books that document these individuals.
