If you’re so inclined, we have several areas of real need. We need help finding some things, and for others we do not have funds to pursue them.
We’ve located a run of A. D. Jones’ paper. It’s the last year of publication, and it’s oversized. The only way to duplicate it is by expensive microfilm. The cost is over three hundred dollars. The best approach would be for someone in the
D. C. area to visit the library and turn pages seeking relevant material. Then
only that would need duplication, some of which could be done by hand. Washington
Jones tried to duplicate Russell’s mass circulation of Food for Thinking Christians. We have very little record of that. We could use more detail. We have only one issue of Day Star earlier than 1886. We need the first two years. They seem not to exist. If you have them, tell us.
We have a solid, representative collection of World’s Hope, Paton’s magazine. We would like a complete run. If you have any issues, please let us know the dates.
Early evangelism is a key part of this story. Details and biographies are helpful. Even though Separate Identity focuses on the years up to 1887, workers who entered the field after that period are important too. If you want to pursue that and pass information to us, we would appreciate it greatly. This was Ton’s last project. I am still mourning Ton and miss his daily emails.

research, contact me. Liberia
Tracts and pamphlets written to refute Russell are rare before 1910. We can use any anti-Russell tracts published before 1920, but especially need those from his first years.
We are seeking the location of Disciples of Christ archives forNever assume we know what you know. We might, but we might not. Tell us, if you have an interesting bit of detail.

to be a central repository. Virginia
