Edmund Clark Sanford (1859–1924) was a prominent early American psychologist. He earned his PhD under the supervision of Granville Stanley Hall at Johns Hopkins University, and then moved with Hall to Clark University in 1888, where he became the professor of psychology and the founding director of the psychology laboratory. He is best known for his 1887 Writings of Laura Bridgman and for his 1897 textbook, A Course in Experimental Psychology. He was present at the creation of the American Psychological Association in 1892 and was the cousin of another early psychologist, Milicent Shinn.[1]
