Collection Description

Biographical/historical note

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 as 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.

Scope and Content

The UGA Department of Psychology records (1934-2012) include administrative correspondence, historical recollections of departmental members, department/faculty minutes, information about research, and a list of requirements for the proposed Psychology Building (1965). This collection also contains departmental faculty's reprints, papers, and manuscripts.

Organization and Arrangement

The collection is organized into seven series.

Administrative Information

Custodial history note

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.
