Northwest Protestantism Collection (PDF)
This is a special collection in Pacific Northwest Protestant history,
which is connected with the university's Institute for Protestant Studies
in the Pacific Northwest through the Weyerhaeuser
Center for Faith & Learning. The purpose of the institute is to
provide a regional resource for historical and professional study in areas
related to the functioning of Protestantism in the larger cultural context
of the Pacific Northwest.
The archives' Protestant history collection is growing through donations of the records of churches, other religious bodies and social service
organizations with religious roots. Also, a bibliography (PDF) is available that lists all books held in the Whitworth University Library
having to do with Protestantism in the Pacific Northwest.
