This collection documents the ministries, family life and literary career of Wilbur Moorehead Smith. The centerpiece of the collection is his extensive correspondence with family, colleagues and publishers, dating from 1915 through 1972. Many of the documents in the Biographical, Pastorates, Independent Board and Moody files were used by Dr. Smith in writing his autobiography, Before I Forget. Also included are documents related to his literary, speaking and teaching career, including a collection of his published bibliographies, articles and pamphlets, notes and manuscripts for his speaking engagements, Bible study guides for both church groups and students and the topical files which supported this lifelong work as a well-read and popular Bible scholar and teacher.
