Skeffington's Writings

Obituary for Arthur Martin Skeffington (March 3rd, 1976). This was found in a box of papers from the library of Robert A. Kraskin, OD sent to Paul Harris by Jeffery Kraskin.

Transcript of the Statement by Dr. A.M. Skeffington Final Presentation (1975). This was presented at the last meeting Skeffington attended and it was read by a colleague.

Optometry is a Unique Profession (A.M. Skeffington, O.D., D.O.S., L.H.D.).  This was written in 1959 and had one of Bob Kraskin’s typed notes that many of us got and saw over the years. Bob’s comment: “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our optometric voice was loud enough and broad enough to let this paper be our guiding light – our directionality – for the good of mankind.”

Functional optometric Philosophy (A.M. Skeffington, O.D., D.O.S., L.H.D.).  This piece encapsulates Skeffington’s philosophy of behavioral vision care very nicely and is a great place to start with gaining insight into how the father of behavioral optometry thought. The piece evolved over time and is difficult to assign a specific date.
