A Gallery of Presidents
of the American Sociological Society and the American Sociological
(1906 to 1964)
We first put this page together when looking at links between mainstream Sociology, sociological Social Psychology and Mead.
Photographs with colored backgrounds highlight Presidents of the American Sociological Society who were notable contributors to the development of American Social Psychology. Those highlighted in black were students or colleagues of Mead.
A full list of Presidents can be found at the ASA website. We have ended the list at 1969 because after that date, no President had a direct relationship with Mead.
There are larger images available by clicking on the thumbnails. Where the names appear in bold face, biographical notes from Howard Odum's American Sociology (1951) are included. Those active in Social Psychology have the upper left outlined in yellow. Colleagues and students of Mead are outlined in red on the lower right edge.
