Norma Louise McCoy
In 1963, McCoy joined SF State where she taught graduate and undergraduate courses in child development, development psychology, experimental child psychology and social learning. She was a strong proponent of Bandura and Walters' social learning theory. Her research and interests led her to study human sexuality. Working with Professor of Biology Bernie Goldstein, she helped establish an interdisciplinary program in human sexuality at SF State. She is best known for her studies relating to women, birth control, estrogen and pheromones.
McCoy retired from the University in 2007. She is survived by her husband Joseph Matyas, son Robbie, daughter Julie, granddaughter Isabelle and sister Doris Vail.
