Abstract: The collection began with a scrapbook full of cutout Bible studies from The Christian Fundamentals Magazine, many from the New Testament course offered by Hadden in each issue, but also including many of its “Questions and Answers” section initialed H.N.B. The scrapbook also includes typed and handwritten notes and a small number of mailings sent out by the League as well as a two page manuscript, “How the Holy Bible Came to Us,” by Gerald B. Winrod. To this scrapbook we have added two pamphlets by Hadden and some information on the League and its publication.  The David Allan Hubbard Library also holds a number of fascicles of The Christian Fundamentals Magazine.
