The Cummings Center for the History of Psychology began as the Archives of the History of American Psychology in 1965. A brief name change to the Center for the History of Psychology from 2000-2014 helped to further define a new mission with an emphasis on teaching and learning through use of the Center’s many and varied collections. Today, the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology has transitioned to an international research facility in the history of psychology and related human sciences. Collections include thousands of materials, from manuscripts and psychological organization records, an extensive library, artifacts and moving images to sound recordings and psychological tests.
The AHAP-CCHP Archives collection contains materials from the Cummings Center’s rich history – from its founding as an historical archive to its current status as a research, teaching, and learning destination.
