Historical Note

The South Carolina Psychological Association was incorporated in 1955 to advance psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare.

Scope and Content Note

The South Carolina Psychological Association (SCPA) was incorporated on April 1, 1955 for the purpose of advancing “psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare.” The South Carolina Psychological Association Records consists of a photocopy of the certificate of incorporation (1955), constitution and bylaws, event programs, invitations, correspondence, newsletters, histories, photographs, and other records related to the activities of SCPA. The collection arrived in three 2-inch binders. Two of these binders contained issues of Feedback the SCPA quarterly newsletter. The third binder contained information about the fiftieth anniversary of incorporation of the SCPA. Some of the information contained in this binder consists of firsts for the SCPA (such as first female president, first president, etc.), the association’s constitution and bylaws, and conference itineraries, as well as a miscellany file which the association included in the binder.

Provenance

The South Carolina Psychological Association Records were deposited into the Louise Pettus Archives and Special Collections by Dr. Tim Daugherty from the Psychology department at Winthrop University in July of 2004. Dr. Oliver Bowman added to the collection in the Pettus Archives on September 20, 2005.
