Department of Psychology (University of Michigan) records, 1903-1998 (majority within 1960-1990)

11.25 linear feet (in 11 boxes) — 437 KB (online)

Teaching and research unit of the College of Literature, Science and the Arts of the University of Michigan. Records include administrative files, committee minutes, reports, some course material and a topical file which contains some information on student antiwar activities, 1966-1967. Also several photos of the psychology laboratories, 1903-1915.

The records of the University of Michigan Department of Psychology document the department from its beginnings, through a period of rapid growth after World War II, to its present standing as a diverse and well established division of the University of Michigan. The first accession of materials from the department was received in 1990 and consisted of about 5 linear inches. Four linear feet of materials have now been added forming one integrated run of records.

The materials are arranged into nine series: History, Administrative Committees, Budget, Course Materials, Sub-disciplines, Topical Administrative Files, Faculty, Students, and publications.


Administrative Committees , 2006, 1960-1998


The Administrative Committees series (3 linear feet, 437 KB (online); 1960-1998 and 2006) includes materials created by the department-wide, policy-making bodies. This is mostly material from the Executive Committee and Staff Meetings although there is also some minimal information created by the Ad Hoc Committee on Departmental Structure and Function, the Committee on Undergraduate Studies, and the Committee on Graduate Studies.

The Administrative Committees series deals mostly with everyday activities and issues of curriculum, policy, and research as well as faculty and student enrollment, placement, funding, and graduation. The Executive Committee meeting minutes are excellent in that they run from 1960 to 1998 with few chronological gaps. All of the records are organized into two sub-series, 1960-1989 and 1983-1998, 2006; and arranged chronologically under the title of the committee.
