As the last issue of the Journal of Personality Assessment is reaching readers this year, it does so at a time when the field has observed the deaths of two highly influential and legendary personality psychologists -- Dr. Sidney J. Blatt and Dr. Theodore Millon. Sidney Blatt (October 15, 1928-May 11, 2014) was regarded as one of the leading psychoanalytic researchers of the 20th and 21st centuries. His interests in personality pathology, development and psychopathology, and personality assessment became widely regarded during his career, which spanned more than 40 years. The Depressive Experiences Questionnaire (Blatt, 1974), Concept of Object Scale (Blatt, Brenneis, Schimek, & Glick, 1976), Separation-Individuation Scale (Coonerty, Diamond, Kaslow, & Blatt, 1987; Diamond, Blatt, Stayner, & Kaslow, 1991), and Object Relations Inventory (Blatt, Bers, & Schaffer, 1993; Blatt, Chevron, Quinlan, Schaffer, & Wein, 1992) -- among others -- have been widely studied and researched.
