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.

Specialized Ministries and Social Welfare Office. Records

This collection provides a high level overview of the work of the Social Welfare Officer, Woodrow W. Carter, Sr., with particular emphasis on his work to coordinate interest across the Church in addressing salient and time-sensitive social concerns. The records bridge the later years of the Christian Social Relations Department but speak mostly to the experimental and investigative strategy of the national church bureaucracy in the 1970s. By that decade, the remnant departmental boundaries of the National Council's Domestic Mission portfolio had given way to amorphous structures that allowed executive officials more flexibility in responding to the perceived needs of the day. The central mission personnel became known as the mission “Program staff” that carried out the work of Executive Council under the direction of the Presiding Bishop. The records serve to demonstrate the last years in which the national Church’s ministry specialists served the governing Council as program staff officers and executives were appointed by and served at the behest of the chief executive officer, a title that was added to the office of the Presiding Bishop.
