Melvin Sabshin, M.D. Library and Archives

Long held in storage, the Melvin Sabshin, M.D. Library & Archives is an important collection of rare books and artifacts dating from the 1400s to early 1900s, photographs, and oral histories documenting the history of psychiatry and the APA. It recently found a beautiful, permanent home in the APA's new headquarters, with an environmentally-controlled space to maintain the collection for future generations and a long-awaited opportunity to share it with APA members and the world.
