The Board for Theological Education records span from the Board’s creation in 1967 through 1976. The records include official minutes of the Board and its committees, studies and reports, correspondence, financial records, and materials regarding the work of the Board. Program records are further organized around continuing education and vocational development, grants given to seminaries, experimental and specialized programs, recruitment, selection and evaluation of students, studies and task forces, overseas theological education, and implementation and enhancement of theological education. Of particular note are the records for the Bishops Advisory Council on Applications for the Ministry (BACAM) and the General Board of Examining Chaplains (GBEC), as well as the correspondence of the Rev. Alden D. Kelley regarding the Board's work in the continuing education of clergy, and records discussing the ordination of women.
