John C. Kenna Audio Archive

The audio archive is named after John C. Kenna, the Society’s first Honorary Archivist, in recognition of his pioneering work in gathering and collecting early audio recordings.

Recordings for the BPS audio archive began in 1956 when John Kenna recorded many interviews with eminent figures in the history of psychology. During his time as Honorary Archivist, Kenna recorded (on reel-to-reel tape) many interviews with well-known psychologists, and it is these early recordings, now transferred to digital disk that form the heart of the current audio archive collection.

Since 2005 HoPC has been running an Oral History Project to build on this early work of John Kenna and to ensure we collect and preserve the oral history of the current generation of British psychologists.

All recordings are available for consultation by appointment at the History of Psychology Centre at the Society’s London office. Contact us
