Center for Adventist Research Manuscript Collections

On this page you can search the manuscript collections held by the Center. The Center holds nearly 400 named manuscript collections occupying around 4,000 linear feet. Materials in these collections include letters, diaries, personal items, biographical/autobiographical material, topical or subject focused files, research and lecture notes, published and unpublished manuscripts, photographs, scrapbooks, audiovisual recordings, artifacts, and more.

If you wish to view the collections and their contents in PDF format, please visit our PDF listing to find the collection you need. Additionally, you will find a list of collections that have not yet been entered into the Archive Space database.

Search or browse our finding aids for folder titles and other descriptive information found in our collections that interest you. Using the drop down menus will assist in a search within specific fields. Search tip: add an asterisk (*) to the end of a word to return results with possible variations of the search term's ending (eg. doctrine* will search for both singular and plural forms of the word.)

Most of our manuscript collections are not in digital form.
