Significant and more voluminous material consists of series relating to professional organizations of which he was a member or officer. These include American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Association for the Advancement of Science, American Association of Museums, American Council of Education, American Psychological Association, Brookings Institution, College Entrance Examination Board, Committee of New England (of the National Planning Association), Educational Testing Service, National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council, National Science Foundation, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Carmichael's association with educational institutions spans the period from his entrance to Tufts University in 1917 until his death. There is significant material for the Tufts period, post 1938, when he became President of the University and Director of the Laboratory of Sensory Physiology and Psychology. This includes reports, committee meetings, and correspondence. There are similiar types of material for his Harvard period (PhD 1924); at Princeton (1924-1926), where he was an instructor in psychology; and at Brown University (1926-1936); but less material for the University of Rochester (1936-1938). He made important contributions to the field of child development, and there is material on the Society for Research in Child Development.
Outside the academic world he functioned in various capacities, all producing significant series within his papers. During World War II, he headed the National Roster of Scientific and Specialized Personnel, which recruited scientists and engineers for the war, and later he was Chairman of the Army Scientific Advisory Panel (on Manpower). Carmichael served as chairman of the Division of Anthropology and Psychology of the National Research Council, and he was also a member and chairman of the advisory board of the Yerkes Laboratories of Primate Biology. One of his more important positions was Secretary for the Smithsonian Institution (1952-1964). Leaving that position, he became the vice president for research and exploration for the National Geographic Society.
There is a sizable group of material for the Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory at Bar Harbor, Maine. He was also an editorial adviser for psychology at Houghton Mifflin Co. Of note are over 150 folders concerning animals, from antelope to zebra, which present his research into their development and behavior. Of significance is the material on the use of motion pictures in psychology. Lastly, there are eleven bound volumes of papers written by Carmichael's psychology students at Brown University and the University of Rochester from 1932-1938. These are grouped under subject headings Audition, Emotion, Endocrinology, Learning, The Lower Senses, Perception, Response, Thought and Language, and Vision.
