Nominated by:  Richard K. Miller

Dr. Howard E. Gardner is an American developmental psychologist best known for his theory of multiple intelligences, as outlined in his book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences (1983).  Gardner’s theory has perhaps had the greatest impact within the field of education, where his conceptualization of intelligence as more than a single, solitary quality has opened the doors for further research and different ways of thinking about human intelligence.
