Methodist Special Collection

The manuscripts in this archive fall into three groups. The first consists of the papers of former Garrett-Evangelical Presidents and faculty members including Milton Terry, Charles Stuart, and Georgia Harkness. The second portion of the collection contains a varied set of materials embracing Methodism from its inception in the 18th century to the present day. Of note are the journals, letters and papers of Ezekiel Cooper and William Colbert. Of particular interest are several letters written by John Wesley. The final portion of the collection includes a large number of books, pamphlets, and periodicals including approximately 500 titles of 18th Century imprints by John and Charles Wesley. Other authors and subjects in the collection include John Fletcher, George Whitfield, and polemical pamphlets originating from early controversies in the American church and from Wesley's reaction to the American Revolution.
