Finding Aid for The UGA Psychology Department History Papers (UGA 04-023/ UGA 05-037)

Record Group: 2-10-21 (Psychology)
2.0 linear ft : Two Ms. Boxes and One Banker's Box

Introduction:

Until 1921, the University of Georgia's Psychology Department was part of the School of Education and was located within Peabody Hall.

In 1921-22 the Board of Trustees designated it an independent department and the Psychology Department became a part of the College of Arts and Sciences. As it grew during the 20th century, the department saw the completion of the Psychology-Journalism Complex in 1969, the addition of animal research labs, and the creation of a highly respected Psychology Clinic.

These materials were collected by former department head, Dr. Roger Thomas, for his studies into the history of the department. Those visiting the campus may be interested in examining the collection of early psychological apparatus available in the Psychology Department.

Scope and Content

Accession 04-023 includes materials dating from 1949 through 1995. A good deal of administrative correspondence is found in this collection, as well as historical recollections of departmental members. Also found in this accession are department/faculty minutes from 1958 through 1995, information about research, and a list of requirements - from 1965 - for the proposed Psychology Building.

Accession 05-037 houses departmental faculty's reprints, papers, and manuscripts dating from 1934 through 1975.

For preservation purposes the collection has been refoldered. Metal paperclips have been removed and newspaper articles have been photocopied onto archival quality paper.
