Colleen Townsend Evans Papers
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.
