The Presbyterian Heritage Center at Montreat is willing to review the following for possible inclusion in its permanent archival collection (after January 2008):
- Manuscripts, letters, documents not required to be deposited with the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia or at a Presbyterian Seminary, such as Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA.
- Reference & research books
- Montreat brochures and other paper ephemera.
We are specializing in the history of Montreat and Presbyterianism both in the U.S. and through American missionaries around the world.
A more detailed Collection Guideline will be issued in late November 2007.
