About The Fellowship
The John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology was established in 2002 by Dr. John Money. The fellowship is to support graduate students whose scholarly work would benefit from the use of library and archival materials at The Kinsey Institute for Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. Applications are encouraged from all students enrolled in a graduate program in the United States and whose interests concern the anthropology, biology, psychology, sociology, history, politics, and methodology of sexology and sexuality studies.
In addition to conducting his or her own research, the fellow is expected to make a contribution to the organization, preservation, and/or accessibility of The Kinsey Institute collections. Examples include, but are not limited to, the creation of annotated bibliographies, collection guides, finding aids, and digital presentations or media productions which highlight or showcase The Kinsey Institute collections.

About Dr. John Money
John Money (8 July 1921 - 7 July 2006) was internationally known for his work in psychoendocrinology and developmental sexology. Born in Morrinsville, New Zealand, Money emigrated to the U.S. in 1947 and received his PhD in 1952 from Harvard University. In 1966, Dr. Money founded the Gender Identity Clinic at Johns Hopkins University and started an extensive research program on the psychohormonal treatment of paraphilias and on sex reassignment. John Money formulated, defined and coined the term "gender role," and later expanded it to gender-identity/role (G-I/R). In 1961, he proposed the hypothesis that androgen is the libido hormone for both sexes.
Extending his research from the clinic to clinical history, Dr. Money wrote about the 18th century origins and present consequences of antisexualism in The Destroying Angel: Sex, Fitness, and Food in the Legacy of Degeneracy Theory, Graham Crackers, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, and American Health History (1985). Venuses Penuses: Sexology, Sexosophy, and Exigency Theory (1986) is an anthology of his theoretically significant writings. His publications also cover the philosophy and methodology of science in the practice of clinical psychoendocrinology and sexology, including Unspeakable Monsters in All Our Lives: The Complete Interviewer and Clinical Biographer, Exigency Theory and Sexology, and many other monographs.
The Kinsey Institute Library houses John Money's lifelong work, including his correspondence, lectures, media interviews and documentaries, as well as books, manuscripts, articles and other writings. The catalog is searchable through The Kinsey Institute's website: www.kinseyinstitute.org/library/kicat.html.
