Colleen Townsend Evans Papers

 Collection — Container: Books
Identifier: SC-039

Scope and Contents

The papers of the noted Christian author and churchwoman, Colleen Townsend Evans consist primarily of book manuscripts and published articles. Other materials include awards, biographical materials, photographs, and memorabilia. The collection occupies 16 linear inches.

The manuscript series contains not only typescripts of books and articles, but also galley proofs and notes. They are arranged alphabetically by the title. Published articles, dating from 1948 to 1987 are also arranged alphabetically.

The other series are less comprehensive. A few folders of biographical material, awards, photographs, announcements of speaking engagements and memorabilia round out the collection. It is particularly weak in the area of personal information; the collection almost exclusively covers Evans' public career.
