Abstract : This is not an objective history of AMEDD Psychology during the decades of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. It is a view based on the experience of one Psychology Consultant who was to some extent involved in what went on during that period. Also my statements here are limited primarily to professional psychology. My responsibilities included professional and experimental psychology but were much broader in the area of professional psychology than in research or experimental psychology. However some extremely important work was done in AMEDD Research Psychology and those contributions certainly deserve an appropriate forum.
