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.
