Collection Description

Historical Note

The Women in Theology and Ministry Oral History Project was sponsored by Candler School of Theology's Program for Women in Theology and Ministry, under the direction of Mary Elizabeth Moore. The purpose of the project was to gather the stories of women in ordained ministries who have composed strong lives and have lived a formative part of their lives in the Southern region of the United States. The project gathers these stories through presentations and interviews in order to preserve their memories and to give honor to their strength, suffering, and contributions.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains administrative files for the Oral History Project, edited and authorized interview transcripts, files on individual participants, as well as audiovisual materials. The administrative files contain a project binder, materials related to the Wabash Center grant, and materials related to the Institutional Review Board application. These materials provide an important background to the development and purpose of the Oral History Project. The edited interview transcripts were reviewed and approved by the interviewees. The files on individual participants contain general information gathered on the individuals, such as a copy of their curriculum vitae, flyers related to speaking engagements, articles by or about the participant, bibliographies, correspondence, and student papers for a select number of participants. The student papers are ungraded and anonymized. The audiovisual materials include the interviews and events related to the Oral History Project. The edited interviews are accessible to researches.

Arrangement Note

Organized into four series: (1) administrative files, (2) edited interview transcripts, (3) interviewee files, and (4) audiovisual materials.
