Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Charles Edwin Jones Collection at Fuller Theological Seminary includes both printed and archival materials. The printed collection is an extensive corpus of materials documenting the Holiness, Pentecostal and Charismatic movements, as well as the contexts in which these traditions have developed. The Jones archives include his research notes, correspondence, rare ephemera related to the subjects of his research. His collection contains significant runs of Holiness periodicals both on paper and on film.
Librarian, archivist, bibliographer and historian, Charles E. Jones (1932 - ) received his education at the Bethany-Peniel College in Oklahoma and the Universities of Michigan (M.A.L.S.) and Wisconsin (M.S. and Ph.D.). His Ph.D. dissertation, published as Perfectionist Persuasion: The Holiness Movement and American Methodism, 1867–1936 (1974), provides background for understanding the sociological and ecclesiological reasons for the rise of the Holiness movement. He has worked as a librarian and archivist at Nazarene Theological Seminary, Park College, the University of Michigan, and Brown University and as a professor of history at Houghton College. In February 2006, a symposium was held at Fuller Theological Seminary in celebration of his scholarly achievement and his gift to the seminary.
