National Committee on Indian Work. Records

Minutes, correspondence, and financial records pertaining to meetings, conferences, and grants/proposals on regional and national levels comprise the bulk of the records of the National Committee on Indian Work (NCIW). Rounding out the collection are the charters and policies of the NCIW, as well as correspondence to/from prominent organizations including the American Indian Movement, the Navajo Area Mission, and the Trail of Broken Treaties. Of note is an original copy of the More Real Involvement position paper which sparked the formation of the NCIW.

Specialized Ministries and Social Welfare Office. Records

This collection provides a high level overview of the work of the Social Welfare Officer, Woodrow W. Carter, Sr., with particular emphasis on his work to coordinate interest across the Church in addressing salient and time-sensitive social concerns. The records bridge the later years of the Christian Social Relations Department but speak mostly to the experimental and investigative strategy of the national church bureaucracy in the 1970s. By that decade, the remnant departmental boundaries of the National Council's Domestic Mission portfolio had given way to amorphous structures that allowed executive officials more flexibility in responding to the perceived needs of the day. The central mission personnel became known as the mission “Program staff” that carried out the work of Executive Council under the direction of the Presiding Bishop. The records serve to demonstrate the last years in which the national Church’s ministry specialists served the governing Council as program staff officers and executives were appointed by and served at the behest of the chief executive officer, a title that was added to the office of the Presiding Bishop.

United Thank Offering. Grants

These records consist entirely of United Thank Offering grant files from the years 1973 to 1978, with a small amount of administrative records and correspondence extending before and after. The files include formal applications, support documents, status reports, and correspondence. The institutions reflected in these files include Episcopal parishes in the United States, Anglican parishes or dioceses abroad, ecumenical groups, and social welfare organizations. Common types of grant proposals include building projects, equipment and transportation purchases (especially for overseas dioceses), and budget support for childcare, health, and education programs associated with Episcopal dioceses.
