Interested in learning about the history of a particular psychology department in the United States?  We might have just the thing for you: The CHP Psychology Department Histories Collection.

The collection is comprised of departmental histories, some casual and some formal, some lengthy and some brief. Some are written as in-depth research papers, while others are more reminiscences in the form of correspondence.  Although each written history is different, they generally document how the psychology department developed within the university, how it fit into the academic structure, and who was in the department and what role they played. Currently, the finding aid lists 56 psychology departments around the United States.

The psychology department histories vary in their form and depth. This file for Clark University contains only correspondence
