Department of Psychology



The archives cover the work of the Department and its eminent psychologists with items including photographs, notebooks, lecture notes, minutes and accounts. Material dates from 1875 with James Ward, up until 1987 with Oliver Zangwill. The collection has largely been assembled by John Mollon, DSc FRS, Professor of Neuroscience.

The Archive is kept as a storage for the existing information produced in the department intending to inform, support and document our history. This gives the opportunity for scientists to access from the source of when everything started.

The Departmental Archive contains rare and unique materials from key figures working in Experimental Psychology at Cambridge from 1870 onwards. Materials include personal papers and correspondence, minutes and notebooks, photographs and pamphlets/reprints.

Individuals include:
Kenneth Craik
Henry Head
Alice Heim
WHR Rivers
Dr W S Stiles
Oliver Zangwill.

These materials are at present uncatalogued.
