Allin, (Most Rev.) John Maury. Papers

The Allin Papers rank as the most comprehensive archive of personal papers of any primate in The Episcopal Church. The archive documents each of the venues in which Allin practiced his ordained ministry and, equally importantly, closely reflects the relationships he developed in his vocational life.

The archive concentrates on Allin’s 1974-1985 term as Presiding Bishop but provides substantial evidence of his service to the Church in ordained ministry, as well as personal pursuits after his retirement. The collection includes sermons, correspondence, photographs, and audio and video recordings. Allin’s life prior to his election as Presiding Bishop is documented by personal calendars, correspondence, and photographs.
