Scope and Content Note

The North Carolina Psychological Association (NCPA) Records document the administration, activities, and membership of the state professional organization for psychologists, 1947 to 1970. Much of the correspondence relates to the NCPA's efforts to secure legislation providing for the certification or licensing of psychologists in the state, a lengthy process that culminated in the Psychology Practice Act of 1967, which created the North Carolina Psychology Board. Other correspondence documents members' opposition to the state's controversial Speaker Ban Law of 1963.

Historical Note

The North Carolina Psychological Association was founded in 1948 as an affiliate of the American Psychological Association, with the purpose of advancing psychology as a science, profession, and means of promoting human welfare. Towards that end, the NCPA supports the study of psychology; defines levels and standards of professional competence; improves standards of psychological training, research, and service; promotes high standards of professional ethics; and interprets psychology to the people of the state.
