Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection most likely came from Aaron Ungersma, a professor at San Francisco Theological Seminary. Attempts to contact Dr. Ungersma have yielded nothing, so there is no documentation on this collection. It is thought that Dr. Ungersma served on the committees represented in the collection. The papers come from the formative years of the World Council of Churches. Papers are often headed, "World Council of Churches (in Process of Formation)." Many are marked "confidential", or "not for publication". The Ecumenical Council for Life and Work, ff 7-10, was chaired by John C. Bennett and the papers contain cover memos from him.
