Scope and Contents: More than half of this collection consists of editorial correspondence and reference material reflecting the major religious and political events of the middle part of the twentieth century. The bulk of these record the editorships of Harold Fey and Kyle Haselden, 1956 1968, and include several letters from well known religious and political leaders. Of particular significance to the history of the magazine's editorial policy are two boxes of writings by Century founder Charles Clayton Morrison including Morrison's autobiography. This collection also includes issues of The Christian Century and The Christian Ministry in manuscript form. The remainder of the collection consists of material from the Christian Century Foundation business files including founding documents, correspondence with the Board of Trustees, promotional and fund raising material, and financial records. A collection of ephemera has been removed to the philosophy ephemera file.
