The scope of the papers of Elbert B. Stone (1911-1973) is limited mainly to his class work in the School of Theology. The content of his class notes reveal the course of study at Candler School of Theology in 1916 to 1919. The collection consists of correspondence (1972-73), literary works by Stone (1911-19), and printed materials (1953, 1969).
