The idea for this book ?rst emerged from a symposium invited by - vision 1 of the American Psychological Association (APA) that was c- ceived by Lewis Lipsitt, who was president of the Division in 2000. The symposium,“Re?ectionsintheMirrorofPsychology’sPast,”chairedby co-editor, Thomas Dalton was organized to pay tribute to John Popp- stone and Marion McPherson, who founded the Archives of the History of American Psychology at the University of Akron, Ohio in 1965. The panel included John Popplestone, my co-editor, Rand Evans and Robert Wozniak, who have contributed chapters to this book. John and Marion, who both served as past presidents of Division 26 of the History of P- chology, retired in 1999 and turned the leadership of the collection over to its new director, David Baker. They were honored at that time by the APAwithaPresidentialCitationfortheirachievementsandweregivena FestschriftinApril2000hostedbytheAkronarchivesattendedbyseveral distinguishedpsychologiststhatincludedLewisLipsitt,LudyT.
