  Rollo May
May was born April 21, 1909 in Ada, Ohio, a native American, and has often been referred to as "the father of existential psychotherapy." This, in itself, is an amazing accomplishment--his pioneering of an existential psychotherapy--since existential philosophy originated in Europe and, for the most part, met with hostility and contempt in the United States.
Of course, May's background in theology, particularly the influence of the existential theologian Paul Tillich, was a major impetus for his desire to pursue a study of psychology informed by existentialist philosophy.
For one, May argues that many psychotherapists at the time had assumed that, with Freud and his followers, most of the major discoveries had already been made, leaving nothing left but the 'mopping up operations' to fill in the details (Note: this attitude is typical of 'paradigms' in the sciences, as Kuhn has pointed out).
