American Psychoanalytic Association Records, 1930-2010

The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA), the oldest and largest national organization for professional psychoanalysts, was founded in 1911. APsaA is a publisher of a peer-reviewed quarterly scholarly Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association (JAPA), the creator of the professional standards and ethics for psychoanalysts, and a constituent of the International Psychoanalytical Association. The Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute is an affiliate of the American Psychoanalytic Association. The small collection of APsaA records held at BPSI Archives reflects the old versions of APsaA constitutions and by-laws, earlier minutes and meeting related correspondence, and recently added papers of late Dr. Sanford Gifford (1918-2013) related to the activity of the APsaA History and Archives Committee.

Finding Aid for this collection is available here.
