Processing Information:

These materials were donated to the Seminary Libraries in January of 1958 by Mr. Allen Waller of Highland Park, New Jersey. A letter dated January 29, 1958 indicates that one additional manuscript notebook of lectures and one manuscript "statement of a disciplinary action" were also to be donated at that time, however it is unclear whether those items were ever received. This collection was organized and the original finding aid was written in October of 1996, by Raymond D. Cannata, under the direction of William O. Harris, Archivist. The finding aid was edited by Sarah Seraphin and Daved Anthony Schmidt in June of 2009.
