This collection consists of the Committee’s records as kept by Dr. Charles Taylor, the director of the study, and includes official minutes and reports, correspondence, data on seminaries, and planning and working documents of the Committee.

Taylor’s work from 1957 to 1967 is well documented and there is correspondence from his time as the director of the American Association of Theological Schools from 1957. Correspondence and reports were generated and collected before, during, and after visits to a number of seminary and theological schools, including Berkeley Divinity School, Episcopal Theological Seminary, and Sewanee.

Committee on the Observance of the Nation's Bicentennial. Records

The committee’s records reflect the work done to create a vehicle for crafting projects and resources for parishes to celebrate the role of religion in marking the country’s bicentennial of independence. Records were also generated by two subcommittees of the Bicentennial Committee: Budget and “Forward Look”, to define future directions for the Church, especially in relation to the Bicentennial theme, "liberty and justice for all.” The latter committee met in 1975 and was chaired by Hodding Carter III. The committee’s records show their full engagement in a planning agenda. Emphasis was given to a special issue Anglican Theological Review (55:1) and the plans for the General Convention program and exhibit. Other publications relating to the Bicentennial are present, including writings on the topic by Presiding Bishop John Allin.

Department of Finance. China Mission Records

Mostly correspondence and some financial records make up this set of records, which dates from 1941 to 1951, excluding the period from January of 1947 through November of 1948. They capture an important record of the activities of the Episcopal Church in China during World War II and during the last days of its work in the early 1950s. The correspondence contains far more than a record of financial transactions, since Allen wrote detailed letters recording the events taking place in China. There is some correspondence with the Bank of China, 1941-1944.

Forward Movement. Records

A small and somewhat artificial collection of the organization’s records are maintained as Series 4 of the Records of Forward Movement. It includes early records, especially the Joint Commission’s report, a scrapbook (compiled by the Bishop Edward L. Parsons), correspondence and some ephemera. The Parsons scrapbook was left intact for its artifactual value. It serves as a record of the early years of Forward Movement from 1935-1937. Catalogs make up a large part of the records and document the agency's publication run. Some promotional materials exist from 1934-1943.

The various legal, diplomatic, medical, and academic documents, including depositions, transcripts of an interrogation that Torok received at the hands of the Economic Warfare division in 1942, and the confession of William Emhardt of the National Council regarding his attempt to undermine Torok in 1924.
