This collection is comprised of the records of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, an association for "those whose
thought and work express a humanistic orientation." Materials in the collection are arranged by series.
The Association for Humanistic Psychology (AHP) was founded in 1961, one year after publication of the Journal of Humanistic Psychology commenced. A membership drive was launched based on Abraham Maslow's informal mailing list, the Eupsychian Network. Founding
members of the society include, among others, Charlotte Buhler, Sidney Jourard, Abraham Maslow, Rollo May, Clark Moustakas,
Lewis Mumford, Carl Rogers. Annual meetings have been held since 1963. AHP "seeks to meet the needs of those whose thought
and work express a humanistic orientation. As a worldwide network seeking to enhance and advance humanistic psychology, AHP
promotes the development of humanistic theory, therapies and research through publications, educational materials and conferences."
