Shannon published a pair of articles titled The Mathematical Theory of Communication in the Bell System Technical Journal. Psychologists reading Wiener for the first time were perhaps more impressed by his discussion of feed- back, and machines which display purposive behavior, than by the suggestions for quantifying information.
