Scope and Content Note

Gerkin was active in the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE) during its formative period in the 1960s and 1970s. He served as its president in the early 1970s. Gerkin’s ACPE files include executive committee and finance committee meeting minutes; conference materials; and correspondence. Materials specific to the Southeast Region of the ACPE include committee files, correspondence, and newsletters. There are also a few files related to the Council for Clinical Training, one of four predecessor organizations that merged to form the ACPE in the early 1960s.

The Georgia Association for Pastoral Care (today a part of the Care and Counseling Center of Georgia) was founded in 1962 with Gerkin as its first executive director. This subseries includes Board of Governors meeting minutes, annual reports, correspondence, and planning files.

Subseries 3.3 includes files from other professional associations, including the Society for Pastoral Theology, as well as materials from conferences and workshops attended by Gerkin.
