Abstract

On July 8, 1892, G. Stanley Hall convened a meeting of eighteen psychologists who met at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, to share knowledge and to form a national organization to promote and support the science of psychology. The first annual meeting of the new organization took place on December 17, 1892. Twenty-six charter members and five newly elected ones provided the human foundation of the American Psychological Association (APA).
