Call Number: RG 180
Scope and Contents

There are additional archives of the FTESEA at the United Methodist Church archives in Madison, New Jersey.

Series I, Administrative Records, is divided into six subseries representing different eras of FTESEA leadership: a) Legal and predecessor documents; b) John R. Fleming era files; c) Alan Thomson era files; d) Ivy Chou era files; e) Marvin D. Hoff era files; f) H. S. Wilson era files. The first sub-series contains records of the Board of Founders of Nanking Theological Seminary and early legal documents of the Foundation for Theological Education in South East Asia. The administrative records include records of FTESEA meetings, including agendas, minutes, reports, and associated financial records, as well as correspondence and memos of the executive directors. These records provide valuable insight into the reestablishment of the Christian church and theological education in China.

Additional information about grants disbursed and other expenses is present in the annual meeting materials found in Series I. Series III contains photographs of FTESEA-related individuals and events. Series IV includes minutes and handbooks of the Association for Theological Education in South East Asia (previously known as Association of Theological Schools in Southeast Asia) as well as material related to some of its member institutions. Series V includes copies of the publications that the FTESEA has sponsored as well as some related to its partners.
