Scrapbooks organized by each year's President form the majority of the collection, and include correspondence, clippings, programs, and some photographs. These scrapbooks developed to include a larger amount of materials as the attendance for the luncheons increased in the 1990s and 2000s. The document boxes hold similar materials arranged in folders. Also included in the collection are some place cards and name badges that reflect that year's theme. The Collection primarily contains materials from the officers and CSBMW's Executive Committee concerning the planning of the annual luncheon. Additions are expected to the collection.
This collection of letters illustrate that some Baptists in the northern and western states felt that Southern Baptists were encroaching on American Baptists territory and violating comity agreements between the two conventions. The letters date from 1946 to 1954. The collection is arranged in alphabetical order by state name. The letters includes notes of information by Adams.

What are finding aids?
Finding aids are records that describe collections and what they contain.
People who work at an institution that owns collections write the finding aids, and the
institution contributes finding aids to ArchiveGrid. We provide links to websites
for the departments which manage their institution's finding aids, so you can contact
them when you read a finding aid and want more information about something inside
the collection that interests you.
