This museum

sounds absolutely excellent (the story's by Dan Hurley, writing in the New York Times): "Where else but at the Archives of the History of American Psychology can visitors see the uniforms and billy clubs used in the Stanford Prison Experiment, in which students ended up acting the role of guards all too realistically; watch a home movie of Freud batting fruit out of a tree with his cane; or have the bumps on their heads measured to calculate their personalities and career prospects with a 1933 psychograph?"

Akron, Ohio is the hometown for the tragic lovers in Dorothy Parker's The Ladies of the Corridor, which I saw recently in NY. And do I also dredge up the memory that Devo hailed from Akron?
