Theodore Carswell Hume Papers

Call Number: RG 116
Scope and Contents

Dating from 1929 to 1969, the material includes correspondence, writings, printed material, and memorabilia of Theodore Carswell Hume. There are two chronologically arranged sequences for each series, because the material was donated to the library at separate times. The writings of Series II form the largest portion of the collection. Included under the broad category of "writings" are sermons, addresses, prayers, service outlines, notes, papers, and memoranda. Hume was clearly a rising star in the ecumenical scene and his death was a blow for many; this sense of loss is reflected in the many tributes to Hume that form part of this collection.

The papers of Hume's parents, Edward H. and Lotta C. Hume, are located at Sterling Memorial Library.
