In the 1980s, the American Psychological Association (APA) Board of Directors approved an oral history project focusing primarily on key figures in American psychology that were advanced in years. Another part of the project involved interviewing past APA presidents. The APA historian continues to conduct these interviews. The APA archives hold the entire collection of these interview tapes. You can search the APA online index of these oral histories at http://apa.org/archives/oral.html for the archives transcripts or http://www.apa.org/archives/sound.html to find the actual audio tapes.

From the guide to the American Psychological Association (APA) Presidents oral history project, 1974-1987, (Center for the History of Psychology)

Professional organization for psychologists founded in 1892 to advance psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare.
