Episcopal Church Annuals. Accumulating Collection

The Archives holds what appears to constitute a full set of Church Annuals dating from 1810 through present day. These annuals were published under various titles by multiple publishers, which were often published simultaneously, merged and/or renamed, resulting in an overlapping listing of titles and dates of publication.

Various Publishers

White, (Rt. Rev.) William. Papers

This collection contains primary sources created, collected, and/or annotated by William White and his descendants, including correspondence, sermons and manuscripts, financial and family estate records, printed illustrations and photographs, and research materials. The collection covers a broad period from 1643 to 1957, although the bulk of White’s papers dates from around 1784 to 1836, when White was most active in the Episcopal Church until his death.

Talbot (Rt. Rev.), Joseph Cruikshank. Diaries

The papers of Joseph Talbot document his time as Missionary Bishop of the North West and as bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Indiana through his death in 1883. The collection consists mainly of a set of pocket diaries kept by Talbot over the period 1856-1882 which gives insight into his daily activities. Also included is a typescript copy of Talbot’s journal of a trip to Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Nevada between May and December of 1863. It offers a reasonably detailed description of travels in the American West at a time when transportation and accommodations were primitive or even dangerous.

Hoare (Rev.), Augustus Reginald. Papers

The papers of Augustus Reginald Hoare comprise a small group of materials consisting of three diaries, two periodicals, two photographs, and one letter. The diaries cover the last years of Hoare's missionary service in Alaska (1912-1920), with a gap for the years 1918-1919 when he was in California. Most diary entries merely refer to daily conditions. The periodicals contain references to Hoare in articles concerning the Alaskan missions. Of interest is a letter from Bishop Peter T. Rowe of Alaska dated August 24, 1920 explaining the circumstances of Augustus Hoare's death.

St. Philip's Normal and Industrial School. Records

The ACI series relating to St. Philip’s School is primarily the ACI director’s correspondence (1921-1937), which details the reasons that St. Philip’s was never made an official ACI school. St. Philip’s publications providing historical background include a brochure (c.1920s) and Opportunity (1923-1924, 1929). Documents relating to ACI’s financial appropriations to the school (1921, 1923, 1931, n.d.), correspondence of the Bishop of West Texas (1921-1922), and a report of an evaluative visit to the school (1926) complete this set of records.
