Scope and Content Note

The bulk of this series is comprised of sermons, many of which are undated. About half of the sermons are filed by topic. There are also drafts of Smith’s two books: Give the Whole Gospel a Chance, published in 1974, and Letters in Turbulent Times, an unpublished manuscript on which he was working at the time of his death. Also included are notes and papers from Smith’s time at Yale University Divinity School, where he earned a B.D. in 1925; manuscripts of columns written for the Wesleyan Christian Advocate; and notebooks kept by Smith throughout his career.
