Scope and Content Note

This file set preserves gathered information on topics relevant to the study of Stone-Campbell history and thought. The file set includes clippings, articles, references, bibliographic material and research leads. ACU Library staff began this set of files in the 1980s. It complements four similar sets of vertical files, all housed as part of the collections of Center for Restoration Studies: Biographical Files, Congregational, World Churches Files, and Organizational Files. In 2017-2018 arrangement and order was improved by removing and cataloging many published tracts and pamphlets. Some non-Stone-Campbell-related files were discovered in this process and were weeded from the collection. Many of the files were refoldered and the entire set was relabeled and an inventory created.

Donor Note

ACU Library staff collected these files from many sources, especially through donor gifts and submissions.


The Subject Vertical File is arranged in alphabetical order by topic or subject. Each entry in this finding aid corresponds to a discrete folder (or folders where indicated) within the file set. The folders are labelled with the subject descriptor and the generic call number (REST—VF—Subj).
