Scope and Content Note
Materials relating to the Restoration Forum, held annually from 1984-2007. There is additional material reflecting on the history and impact of the Forums, which was assembled in 2007 or 2008. The materials were rehoused from boxes into acid-free folders, retaining the creator's original order. Folders contain photographs, programs, ephemera, cassette or video recordings, CDs and clippings. Boxes 1-2 contain folders for each Forum. Boxes 3-4 contain video cassettes of Forum presentations.
Victor Knowles is a preacher, editor, writer and publisher who was involved as a planner and promoter of the annual Restoration Forum meetings. These materials reflect his activity in that capacity; he created and collected these materials.
The materials are arranged in chronological order, as created by the donor. During processing the materials for each Forum meeting were rehoused from boxes (one box per Forum meeting) to acid-free folders. In some cases cassette tape recordings were retained at the folder level. Boxes 1-2 contain these folders in chronological order. Video cassettes were not boxed by the creator in any order; they have been retained in boxes 3-4.
Boxes 1-2: Folders for each Restoration Forum, generally one folder per year, 1984-2007 Boxes 3-4: Video cassettes of Forum presentations, mostly from 1984, in large format VHS
