The Shulgin Archive is dedicated to creating a global-access digital library of Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin and his wife Ann Shulgin’s extensive research materials on psychedelics to support the work of psychotherapists, researchers, and social activists interested in the ethical applications of psychopharmacology towards a better society.
Like any non-profit organization, particularly one with a research orientation, we are entirely dependent on generous donations in order to keep the project going. We have an amazing and talented team working on the archive with passion and dedication. Now is the time to invest in the project so we can deliver the digital platform within our 5-year timeframe outlined below!
We invite you to subscribe to our email list to receive regular updates on archive activities and progress.
“I do this work because of the incredible properties I have come to appreciate in these products [psychedelic compounds]. Some of these drugs will be of unprecedented value… in the exploration of the human mind. And they can, as a consequence, be of value to physicians and healers…. psychedelics are among the world’s most useful tools in the pursuit of this understanding.” Sasha Shulgin, Why I Do What I Do
5-year Project Timeline:
- 1.5 to 2 years (2017 to 2019) to complete scanning and digitizing of all materials
- 2 to 3 years (2019 to 2022) to create a user friendly classification system and launch the online digital database
Sasha and Ann Shulgin imbued their work with incredible integrity and transparency, which are rare in any field. The materials in the Shulgin estate we are attempting to preserve form a unique collection steeped in the cultural history of the psychedelic movement. They also contain outstanding reports on psychopharmacological research that should be available to future generations of researchers wishing to continue their legacy.
