Joseph Mattsson-Bozé became a leader in the "Latter Rain," a splinter movement within Pentecostalism in the 1940s and 1950s. His papers range in date from 1933 to the early 1970s and include correspondence with significant figures in classical independent Pentecostal circles. A full run of the Swedish journal Trons Härold, which became the English journal Herald of Faith, can be found in the collection. Other short-lived Swedish and English journals help comprise the Mattsson-Bozé Collection. These papers, along with the DeGregorio Papers, constitute a rich resource for independent or nondenominational Pentecostalism. The collection includes material on: Immigrant Churches; Latter Rain; Independent Pentecostal Churches; East African Revival; Revival in Argentina; Rock Church (New York, NY); Philadelphia Church (Chicago, IL); First World Pentecostal Conference (1949); William Branham; Henry Carlson; and Clair Hutchens.
The current arrangement of the materials is the work of Martha Nelson, Joseph Mattsson-Bozé's longtime secretary. Additional material on Mattsson-Bozé can be found in the Lewi Pethrus Archives in Sweden and the Dagen newspaper.
