Descriptive Information

Abstract: Records in this sub-set of the corporate records of the Menninger Archives come from such organizations as the Topeka Psychoanalytic Society (TPS) and the Topeka Institute for Psychoanalysis (TIP), the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP), and the Kansas Psychiatric Society (KPS) in particular. Other notable organizations' papers available in smaller quantities from this sub-collection include the the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA), the American Psychiatric Association (APA), the Kansas Psychological Association (KPsA), and numerous other local, state, regional, and national medical and psychiatric organizations.

Typical records available from most of these organizations include membership rosters or directories, programs from annual and semi-annual meetings, by-laws, meeting minutes, and correspondence between Menninger Foundation staff members and other members of these associations, including those individuals in leadership positions. Other materials may be scattered amongst specific organizations and for certain small numbers of years, particularly depending upon whether a Menninger staff member held a leadership position at the time or was otherwise influential in that organization. Records from some of the national organizations can sometimes be found in the state and local organizations' records, and more material for many of these organizations can also be found with specific individuals' papers, particularly regarding their own roles in these organizations.
