This study presents norms on the Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS) for a sample of 99 older persons recruited from a primary care internal medicine practice that draws its patients from a well-defined geographic region. Recruitment procedures were used that minimized selection bias. Subjects were persons ages 65-97 who served as normal controls for an Alzheimer's Disease Patient Registry. Within this sample, IQ and education, but not age, accounted for significant proportions of variance in WMS scores. Norms are presented in unstratified, IQ-adjusted, and education-adjusted formats.
