Abstract

The Floyd M. Martinson Collection consists primarily of reproductions of secondary source material used by Dr. Martinson in his research regarding the family and the development of sexuality in children.

Biographical Note

A native of Minnesota, Dr. Floyd M. Martinson (1916-2000) was a professor of Sociology and Anthropology (1945-1982) and a Research Professor (1982-2000) at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. Dr. Martinson wrote prolifically regarding the family and the development of sexuality in children and is best known for The Sexual Life of Children (1994). Several of his writings are available online at the Floyd M. Martinson Memorial Republication Project.

He was named a Fulbright Research Scholar in 1980 and was the recipient of the Alfred C. Kinsey Award in 1988. He was also active in several professional organizations, including the American Sociological Association, the International Sociological Association, the International Academy of Sex Research, and the Society for the Scientific Study of Sex.

Dr. Martinson was also a devoted family man. Married in 1946 to Beatrice Awes, the couple had five children and 7 grandchildren at the time of his death.
