The society was originally formed as the "Experimental Psychology Group" by Oliver L. Zangwill in 1946. The first meeting was held in the rooms of Professor Frederic Bartlett, in St. John's College, Cambridge. EPS in co-operation with The British Psychological Society published guidelines for members engaged psychological activities involving living animals.[2] The Group became the EPS in 1958, the transition being handled by the then president, W. E. Hick.
