It’s a WRAP: NHPRC Funded Project Concludes

March 31, 2013, concluded the eighteen month NHPRC funded project “Preserving the Past, Preparing, for the Future: Building Sustainable Archival Collections.” During the project, 1,370 linear feet of materials were processed comprising 103 collections. The finding aids for the collections can be accessed through the Online Archive of California.

Over the course of the grant, we had many people pitch in to get things done. Three student workers: Jenna Fry, Lindsey Gant, and Catie Golitzin; four interns: Alexandra Mogan, Austin McElrath, Andrea Oates, and Sarah Dannemiller; one cataloger: Casey Ann Mitchell; a graduate student assistant: Jessica Geiser; and three archivists: Jamie Henricks, Melissa Nykanen, and Katie Richardson all put in time to make sure the grant was a success. In addition to having collections organized following national standards and best practices, local policies were established in the archives to accession and maintain new collections going forward.

Pepperdine Bible Lectures Finding Aid Online and Ready for Research

Another finding aid from Special Collections and University Archives is available on the Online Archive of California! The Pepperdine Bible Lectures collection (processed as part of the NHPRC project) is briefly described below.

The Pepperdine University Bible Lectures, coordinated by the Office of Church Relations, began in January 1943 and is an annual (sometimes semiannual) series of talks held at Pepperdine on religious and scriptural issues.  The Pepperdine University Bible Lectures collection includes paper materials (including programs, correspondence, and other items) and audio recordings taken during Pepperdine Bible Lectures held in Los Angeles (beginning in 1943) and Malibu (beginning in 1973).  Click here to view the finding aid.

If you are interested in seeing a program from any of the Bible Lectures, or listening to audio from lectures starting in 1972, consider making an appointment to see the collection! (Some years also have correspondence and other papers, but the bulk of the collection is programs and audio.) For more information about the collection, or to set up an appointment, please email specialcollections@pepperdine.edu.

Unfamiliar with this annual event?  Bible Lectures at Pepperdine is a long tradition — spring lectures have been held every year since 1943 (except for 1957) and additional summer lectures were also held for a few decades.  People from all over the United States and around the world travel to Pepperdine for a week to listen to a great number of speakers — sessions are packed in all day, including lectures during meals and large evening talks.  Entire families arrive to stay on campus, either living in the dorms or setting up mobile homes in campus parking lots.  Pie and coffee is served nightly to benefit student scholarships.  The Bible Lectures site is part of Pepperdine’s website, and includes information about the upcoming lectures, frequently asked questions, and a brief history of Bible Lectures.

1962 was celebrated at Bible Lectures as the centennial of the Restoration Movement; that year was also the last time George Pepperdine attended the lectures in March.  Mr. Pepperdine later died at the end of July, 1962.  Mr. Pepperdine can just barely be seen at the right side of a picture of the closing lecture (10,000 people attended!) on the Bible Lectures history page.

A large flyer (outside back and outside front, and inside left and right, respectively) advertises a charter flight from Nashville, Memphis and Dallas directly to Los Angeles to attend the Bible Lectures.  Another attractive prospect was the option to add excursions to Disneyland, Hollywood, and Knott’s Berry Farm!

Papers of Pepperdine Professors Open for Research

The collections of three Pepperdine professors have been processed by Special Collections and University Archives, with finding aids now available on the Online Archive of California for research!  The Ronald W.

Young at Heart in the Archives: M. Norvel and Helen Young Papers Open for Research

The finding aid for the M. Norvel and Helen Young papers is now available on the Online Archive of California!  The collection was processed as part of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) grant awarded to the department of Special Collections and University Archives.

The collection contains the personal and professional papers of M. Norvel and Helen Young. The bulk of the materials range from the 1900s to early 2000s and document the Youngs’ involvement with Pepperdine University; their families’ lives; and their activities while based in Tennessee, Texas, and California.

The Youngs were involved in Pepperdine from the beginning – Helen was a student during the first year of classes in 1937, and Norvel taught history for a few years, starting in 1938.  The two moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to further their education at the George Peabody College of Vanderbilt University, then moved to Lubbock, Texas, so Norvel could preach at the Broadway Church of Christ from 1944 to 1957.  The family (including their four children) moved to Los Angeles in 1957, when Norvel accepted the job of President of Pepperdine (later transitioning to Chancellor and Chancellor Emeritus).  Helen and Norvel were very involved in the various Churches of Christ they attended, and also edited multiple nationwide church publications.  Norvel and Helen continued their support of Pepperdine for decades, until Norvel’s death in 1998 and Helen’s retirement in the mid-2000s.

The collection has a fascinating depth of information about the Youngs as a family (including their extended families – pictures, family trees, and family history!), their educational careers, Pepperdine as a university, their travel around the world, and the Churches of Christ – all with information spanning from the early 1900s to the early 2000s.

For more information about the collection, or to set up an appointment to use the collection, please email specialcollections@pepperdine.edu.

A Window Into 1960s Television: Scripts Open For Research

The finding aid for the Ivan Goff collection of television scripts is now available on the Online Archive of California!  The Online Archive of California (OAC) is part of the California Digital Library and is a great tool for starting a research project.  The OAC allows access to finding aids (detailed descriptions of collections of primary resource materials) from over 200 institutions in California, including museums, libraries, historical societies, the University of California system’s libraries and archives, and others.

Jessica Geiser, the graduate student assistant for the NHPRC project, processed the materials earlier in the year and the collection is now open and available for research.  Here is what Jessica had to say about the collection:

Ivan Goff was an Oscar-nominated screenwriter who authored a number of successful movies from 1949 to 1960 with his writing partner, Ben Roberts.  Goff and Roberts also wrote and produced several popular series for television in the 1960s and 1970s. The collection contains scripts and production notes from three television series in which Goff was involved as a writer or producer: Mannix, Nero Wolfe, and The Rogues.

Mannix was a Golden Globe-winning detective series that ran from 1967 to 1975 on CBS, and starred Mike Connors as the Los Angeles private investigator Joe Mannix. While Mannix was considered extremely violent for its time, it also is known as one of the most popular detective series of all time.

Nero Wolfe was another detective series, based on a Sherlock Holmes-type character created by American mystery writer Rex Stout.  The show ran for one season in 1981 on NBC, and starred William Conrad as the genius, but sedentary detective Nero Wolfe.

The Rogues was a television series about a trio of former con men who, while no longer in the business, could be persuaded to use their skills to take down an immoral mark.  The series, a Golden Globe-winner, ran for one season from 1964 to 1965 on NBC, and starred David Niven, Charles Boyer, and Gig Young.

The collection is a great resource not only for those interested in these particular series, but also for anyone interested in television production in general. Most of the scripts in the collection include various production notes, which shed light on many aspects of producing a network television show, including scheduling, casting, and network interference.

Another collection for those with similar research interests is the Stanley M. Kallis scripts, also recently processed and available on the OAC.  The collection has scripts from two television shows: The Dick Powell Show and Royal Bay.

These items are available to view by visiting Special Collections and University Archives in Payson Library, and anyone may browse more detailed inventories of available scripts in person.  For more information about the collection, please email specialcollections@pepperdine.edu.

NHPRC Project Is Underway As Graduate Student Assistant Processes Two Collections

Jessica Geiser, hired as the graduate student assistant to work on the NHPRC project, recently processed two of our archival collections.  The B. Lamar Johnson and the James C. Moore papers are now open and available for research. A brief description about each of the collections is below.

B. Lamar Johnson was a highly distinguished educator known as “the father of the community college” due to his extensive contributions to the study and development of community college education. The collection contains correspondence, reports, speeches, administrative papers and publications from Johnson’s tenure at Stephens College, UCLA, and Pepperdine University, as well as other educational organizations and activities with which Johnson was involved.  The bulk of the materials date from 1952 to 1983.
