Hubbard in "The Legacy of Four Presidents"
The David Allan Hubbard Library recently launched the new Archives, Rare Books, and Special Collections website at libraryarchives.fuller.edu
. Visitors to the site can view a number of rare photographs from the library’s special collections—including retrospectives on Fuller’s four presidents, women at Fuller, the Jesus People movement, and South African Pentecostal ecumenist David du Plessis’s work, as well as cartoons created by American Baptist pastor, writer, and artist Jackson Wilcox.
Other holdings accessible through the new site include the papers of the seminary’s founder, Charles E. Fuller, featuring his handwritten Old Fashioned Revival Hour radio show sermons as well as restored CDs of many of the programs. Users may also find the M. Scott Peck papers, donated to the seminary by the psychiatrist and best-selling author himself, and used in the writing of Peck’s biography by Arthur Jones.
The archives are the place to go for primary sources when writing a history paper, or a paper on evangelical thinking on a variety of topics. Researchers can access searchable finding aids, apply for access to the materials, and communicate with the Hubbard Library archivist, Nancy Gower.
