Title of Collection
Scope and Content Note
This file set preserves gathered information on 489 organizations, entities, businesses, non-profits, and missionary, educational, and benevolent institutions affiliated with Churches of Christ, Christian Churches and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The file set includes clippings, articles, promotional materials, newsletters, photographs and ephemera. 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 Subject Files. In 2018-2019 arrangement and order was improved by removing and cataloging many published tracts and pamphlets. After weeding non-Stone-Campbell-related material, many of the files were refoldered and the entire set was relabeled and an inventory created.
ACU Library staff collected these files from many sources, especially through donor gifts and submissions.
The Organizational Vertical File is arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the organization. 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—Org).
See accompanying document for full folder-level contents list.
