This Just In: Albert C. Bass Papers

Last week Library Dean John Weaver unloaded a car load of papers, files, sermon outlines, notes, manuscripts and charts.   It took me three trips to bring it all downstairs.   in addition to the large boxes of files, there are about 40 paper and cloth sermon charts.

Our most recent addition, these papers are from evangelist Albert C. Bass.   From what I can gather in my first survey of the materials, I see that Bass ministered among churches of Christ in the northwest:  Montana, Oregon and Washington.  I look forward to accessioning these items into our holdings and learning more about his ministry.  I trust it won’t be too long before we will have a finding aid for this collection prepared….stay tuned.

Here are three of his hand-painted sermon charts:
