Mary P. Follett's collaboration with Eduard Lindeman, a professor of sociology at the North Carolina College for Women in Greensboro, resulted in the 1924 publication of her Creative Experience and his Social Discovery. However, their relationship was far from smooth. Their research partnership was born after Follett's visit to North Carolina in the spring of 1922. Follett introduced Lindeman to Herbert Croly and Dorothy Whitney Straight, a young New York heiress. In September 1922 Follett and Lindeman, along with Albert Dwight Sheffield, spent a week in Putney planning a program of research. Lindeman would soon try to abandon the joint undertaking due to his increasingly intense yearning for Straight's approval and affection. Follett and Lindeman overcame this and other issues to publish their respective books.
