The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by the Psychology Section


In 1965, the Archives of the History of American Psychology (AHAP) was founded at the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio. It is now recognized as the largest collection of its kind in the world. The AHAP houses an extensive collection of personal papers and organizational records, a large instrument and apparatus collection, a rare book collection, more than 20,000 still images, 9,000 reels of film and audio tapes, a test collection including more than 12,000 records and a newly formed art collection. In 2005 the AHAP was named to the prestigious Smithsonian Affiliates program. The objects and other materials included in the AHAP collection serve to promote research in the history of psychology and human science. It also serves to inform and educate the public about the science and practice of psychology and its role in society. This presentation will provide an introduction to the holdings of the AHAP and explore the ways in which these materials contribute to a greater understanding of ourselves in a historical context.
