The content of William Stephenson’s study, including various books and artifacts, have now been moved to the Drs. Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Center for the History of Psychology (CCHP) at The University of Akron, OH, where they are awaiting processing.

The CCHP began as an America-only enterprise largely funded through grants, but it has since widened its scope to include more international materials.  The Center has been most enthusiastic about Stephenson materials, and following its $3.5m renovation (probably in the autumn) there should be a sizable Stephenson presence there.  The vacating of the Stephenson study marked the end of an 80-year era that was followed by the sale of the Stephenson home and the passing of Mariel (February 29), who had been living there since her father’s death (1989) and taking care of Mrs. Stephenson until her death in 2001.

Some impressions from the move:
