Torok (Rev.), John. Papers

The Papers of John Torok consist primarily of correspondence with some legal or ecclesiastical documents. Torok’s correspondence centers largely on his own efforts to serve as an ordained person in the U.S. Episcopal Church. The material has value to understanding the complexity in ecumenical relationships in the inter-war period. The various legal, diplomatic, medical, and academic documents, including depositions, transcripts of an interrogation that Torok received at the hands of the Economic Warfare division in 1942, and the confession of William Emhardt of the National Council regarding his attempt to undermine Torok in 1924.

Torok’s writings in this collection are primarily ecclesiastical and relate to Count Michael Karolyi, who was briefly the leader of the First Hungarian People’s Republic, 1918-1919. Torok had served under him in the State Department.

Education for Mission and Ministry Unit. Records

This collection comprises a mixed series of Administrative Records and Subject Files that includes correspondence, reports, and printed material that appear to have been gathered selectively by an unknown office within the Education for Mission and Ministry cluster.

Prominent topics include the Diocese of Puerto Rico, Clergy Studies, and the National Institute for Lay Training (NILT). The NILT became the legal successor to the Church Army in 1975, promoting the training of laity for service to the Church community through the placement of volunteers in parish programs and seminaries. Of particular interest are General Convention committee records and a 1973 study by the Office of Development, “What You Said,” concerning diocesan needs and priorities.
