Summary
"The author of a recent history of psychology found that it was impossible to get important facts concerning the scientific development of certain individuals except from those individuals themselves. Since a science separated from its history lacks direction and promises a future of uncertain importance, it is a matter of consequence to those who wish to understand psychology for those individuals who have greatly influenced contemporary psychology to put into print as much of their personal histories as bears on their professional careers. The initial idea, which later developed into the general plan for A History of Psychology in Autobiography, was contained in a letter of April 10, 1928, from Edwin G. Boring to Carl Murchison. Shortly afterwards, there was a conference in Emerson Hall, participated in by Edwin G. Boring of Harvard University, Karl Bühler of the University of Vienna, and Carl Murchison of Clark University, which resulted in our inviting Herbert S. Langfeld of Princeton University and John B. Watson of New York City to join with us in a committee which would assume responsibility for all invitations extended for inclusion in such a series. We then proceeded in the following manner in arriving at a tentative list of individuals to whom invitations were to be sent. Without consultation, each member of the Committee compiled a list of one hundred names that he considered eligible for such a series. The five lists of one hundred each were then combined, making a composite list of one hundred eighty-four names. Taking the one hundred eighty-four names as a nomination list, each member of the Committee then voted for sixty names. All chosen unanimously were placed upon a preferred list to whom invitations would be sent as the Series progressed. Since preparing the original list, the members of the Committee, in conference, have expanded somewhat the principle of selection which originally guided them. We agreed that individuals on the fringe of psychology or even in a neighboring field of science might so influence psychology that they should be included. In this Series, the printing of long and comprehensive bibliographies has been definitely avoided, since these will be accessible in the Psychological register"--Preface.
