Scope and Content Note

Consists of correspondence, syllabi, bibliographies, lecture notes, and other supporting materials for classes taught by Thornton. The files are organized chronologically, tracing Thornton’s teaching career from the Institute of Religion through his final position at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. A few files contain general correspondence and miscellaneous administrative materials related to Thornton’s appointments.

Materials for individual courses taught by Thornton are divided into two main categories. Folders marked “methods and sources” contain syllabi, bibliographies, and other summary information. Folders marked “samples” contain more specific lecture materials and sample student works.
