Description

his 1927 correspondence between president of Johnson Bible College (JBC), Emma Johnson (1863-1927), and Secretary of the Board of Education of Disciples of Christ, H. O. Pritchard, consist of Pritchard's invitation to Johnson Bible College to cooperate with the Board, Emma's denial, and Pritchard's response. The letters reveals Johnson's firm stance on the independent nature of JBC, not only for theological but also pragmatic reasons. It demonstrates the tensions between "cooperatives" and "independents" in the 1920s and the process by which an institution could be invited to affiliate with the progressive Board of Education. Beyond that, it shows the work of one of the first female presidents of a college in the United States.
