Amounting to approximately 25 cubic feet, the Forward Movement Publications Collection currently spans the period 1934-2021. The print publication record begins in 1935. The collection is defined by four series: (1) Serial Publications: Out-of-print Publications; (2) Serial Publications: Forward Day by Day; and (3) Books and Pamphlets. (A fourth series of records is separately cataloged). The Out-of-print Publications in Series 1 are organized alphabetically by serial name and then chronologically by year. Series 2 consists of one Forward Movement serial publication which is still in-print – "Forward Day by Day,"and is arranged chronologically by year.

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.

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.
