Editors Note: Richard Walsh, while not a participant at the 1985 symposium, was invited by Jim Kelly to prepare a summary from his larger study of the social history of community psychology that relates directly to the Swampscott conference and the participants at Swampscott. His report published here derives from interviews with six participants at the Swampscott conference. It is included in order to contribute an additional perspective for the heritage of the Swampscott conference.
This study derives from a doctoral dissertation completed at York University, Toronto, under the supervision of K. Danziger. I am grateful to the informants and to J. G. Kelly.
