Atlantic article about one of the most ambitious psychological studies ever done headed by the psychiatrist George Vaillant.

The project is one of the longest-running—and probably the most exhaustive—longitudinal studies of mental and physical well-being in history. Begun in 1937 as a study of healthy, well-adjusted Harvard sophomores (all male), it has followed its subjects for more than 70 years.

Required reading.
