My doctoral dissertation involves two instruments and your website could be very helpful to me as I need to research the history of learning styles and short-term memory and the instruments that test them. Thank you! Pat

I came across your site while researching some instruments in our collection. It turns out we have many similar objects at our museum. Hopefully as I continue to catalog and research our collections, I will become better acquainted with you and your museum. Eric Jentsch NMAH Smithsonian Institution

Groningen, August 13 2000 The first laboratory of Experimental Psychology in the Netherlands was founded by Gerardus Heymans (1857-1930) in 1892. At the State University of Groningen (RUG) Heymans' collection consisting of 70 apparatus/instruments is the best kept and most comple in the world. Anybody interested to know more about it is welcome to contact me. Kars Dekker Tuinbouwstraat 119A 9717 JG Groningen The Netherlands

This is a great site. I like how you can actually see the instruments in color and they don't look like a drawing. One of my professors at Arkansas State University is setting up a web page for the history of psychology. He's trying to put a web site together to make it easier for students to search on the history of psy. Your web site help me out alot! Thanks.

I came here to find information on the beggining of psychiological studies and treatments. As I have recently discovered the history of psychology is one of learning and dicovery. I find it quite interesting. I didn't find what I was searching for but I enjoyed visiting the site. Thank you this site will be an asset to my education.

This site is really great and I enjoyed reading about the instruments and the history, but is there a place, where one can see the objects in reality? Is there a museum of psychology in Toronto?

Hi! Say hello to Doug Just wanted to let you know I stopped by. I'll come back for a more in depth session another time. It looks great, and I'm glad to see you've had some good visitors.

The first time I saw your site was from "History & Philosophy of Psychology Web Resources Page". I've followed your work for the last few months. It's really interesting. I'm a psychologist and a Ph.D student in History of Science in Italy, so I appreciated your effort to bring your collection of psychological instruments out. In Italy a few researchers in Rome, Bari, and Florence are making an outstanding effort to catalog psychological instruments that are in our institutions. We hope to make a site like yours. Thank you for your example. A.M. Ferreri

Interesting site. I plan to add it as a link to the web-based introductory psychology class I teach, and I will suggest it as a link on the department home page. Gabriel P. Frommer

Great web site. I left U of T in 1966, but completed the Ph.D. in '68. You brought back fond memories of Glenn MacDonald, Jack Clarke(our instrument maker!), Endel Tulving, Dan Berlyne. Yes, I saw Marty Wall, Jerry Hogan and Gary Walters at their starts at U of T, but I'm sure hey"d never remember me! Best wishes and good luck. Marv Malcotti

Enthusiasts for the History of Science (or those who still need convincing) will do well to study sites such as this or our own embryonic one at the University of Manchester. (See Sometimes historians do not use the resources they have to hand (in cupboards, dark corners, in boxes, forgotten or abandoned) because either 1) They were simply unaware of the instruments owned by their institutions or 2) There is too little training given to mainstream historians on how to work with material evidence. I have generally found that a little time expended can be very rewarding. If you can create a culture of object-study then resources to store and conserve the items may follow. Think of your collection as a "Library" without books. Best of luck in your endeavours.

Like the others I heard you on the CBC this morning and as I did my undergraduate work at U of T, I thought I would check your page out. Super stuff. I have a love for old instruments that the technician here at CRESTech encourages and we often go hunting for old pieces. I particularly like the old boxes that accompany this instruments. They are works of art in themselves. Keep up the good work. I hope you can find some real space to display these items. Heather p.s. I enjoyed your comment about having to decide which of 1970's vintage equipment is worth saving. I hope that you get hold of a card reader, that would really bring back memories of U of T for me - hours spent organizing computer cards and running statistical analyses all night long in Sid Smith Hall.

Thanks to Bill Verplanck, who had some guesses as to one of the mystery pieces, I have dug into it and have done a more thorough description. Now we are _really_ curious as to its real uses and source! See text with the picture.

An outstanding effort! The bibliographies are of immense value. Are you aware of the extensive collection of instruments at the Archives of the History of American Psychology at Akron U.? It is cataloged but not described (nor on the Web) and is well-worth a special trip to Akron!

A great idea and very useful as an instructional device. I assume you know about Ed Haupt's instrument museum (very different from yours). If not, e-mail me for the URL. One critical comment. Why do the pictures have such poor defintion (are they .jpg's)? I'm using Netscape 3.0 on a Mac and virtually all detail is impossible to see. Would it be possible to scan them in at higher resolution--with instruments, as I don't need to tell you, detail is everything. Thanks for doing this. Rob
