Randolph C. Miller exerted a profound influence on religious education in the U.S. and throughout the world as professor of Christian education and theologian of process and relationship. These papers complement other the significant holdings in the field of religious education at the Yale Divinity Library, including the papers of George Albert Coe and Paul Vieth, and the archives of the Religious Education Association and the Association of Professors and Researchers in Religious Education.
Series I, Published Articles and Pamphlets, includes writings that Miller published throughout his long career. Many of these articles were gathered by the library over a period of years. Other articles by and about Miller are interspersed in the Alphabetical Files of Series III, which represent Miller's own office filing system. Series II, Manuscripts and Drafts, contains primarily typescript versions of articles and booklength writings that later appeared in published form. There are also typescript sermons in this series. The Alphabetical Files of Series III provide an excellent snapshot of Miller's accomplishments and interests. The Scrapbooks of Series IV contain material similar to that found in Series I and III, just in a different format. The Notes of Series V are Miller's handwritten notes for sermons, talks, etc. on a wide variety of topics. Series VI, Audio-Visual Material, includes a five-part video series entitled "A life in Education; A Conversation with Randolph Crump Miller" and a two-part audio series entitled "Theology of Jazz."
