Collection Description

Historical Note

From 1949-63 the organization was called National Association of Biblical Instructors, Southern Section. In 1964, the name was changed to American Academy of Religion, Southern Section. Beginning in 1969 it was designated American Academy of Religion, Southeastern Region. (In 1969-70, the programs say Southern Section; however, the Minutes say Southeastern Region.)
