The papers of Frances Ure (1890-1987) provide insight into the role of women in the Pentecostal movement. Ure grew up in Pittsburgh and received her theological training from Washington Female Seminary in 1910. She was converted through the ministry of Dr. S.M. Zweemer, a Dutch Reformed Missionary. She established a congregation on Long Island and became its pastor. She also served as pastor of Farmingdale Gospel Church, which was a branch of the Pittsburgh Bible Institute. Later she left that ministry in order develop teacher training classes. She taught classes for Sunday school teachers in many Assemblies of God and Open Bible Standard Churches.
The collection of this itinerant Pentecostal evangelist includes teaching outlines, sermons notes, church bulletins, advertisements of upcoming meetings, poems (a few of which are published), financial and medical records. Also part of the collection are the wartime correspondence and military medals of Ure's father, Walter Ure, who served in the Union Army as a physician during the Civil War.
