The William Park Armstrong papers were first organized as a part of the Alumni Alcove collection of the Seminary library. In March of 1996 these lecture notes were reorganized as a manuscript collection of the Seminary Archives. At that time several items were added to the collection, including the biographical materials, correspondence, and the second set of typescript notes on Apostolic History.
