The Cutler Whitwell Diaries, an addition to the Charles E and Grace Payton Fuller Collection, 1927-1967 record the lives of Cutler Whitwell (1882-1968) and his wife Florence Nye Whitwell. The diares begin on December 31, 1927 and end June 8, 1968. The bulk of the content reflects the evangelical movement of those years. For example, the January 1928 entries refer to Gipsy Smith’s messages and M.G. Kyle’s lectures on archaeological findings, and a later entry on January 14th, 1941 reports the death of their friend Charles Trumbull, popular ‘Keswick’ preacher.

The diaries repeatedly mention Charles and Grace Fuller as well as regular trips to the Long Beach Auditorium, the location of the Old Fashioned Revival Hour radio broadcast (1930s-1958). The 1948 and 1949 diaries also mention Fuller Theological Seminary. The 1950s diaries refer to Harold Ockenga, Wibur Smith, Carl Henry, Billy Graham, J. Vernon McGee, Charles Woodbridge, and Charles Fuller.
