Plan New Historical
The Historical Foundation of
the Presbyterian and Reformed
Churches was established in 1902
by Dr. S. M. Tenny in Texarkana,
Texas. In 1927 the institution was
brought to the Assembly Inn in
Montreat. From a small beginn
ing, consisting of a package of
old manuscripts, the accumula
tion of the Foundation has grown
by leaps and bounds until the
present-day library and vaults
are fairly bursting their seams.
Lot number one in Montreat
has been selected as the site for
the new Historical Foundation
Building. The tentative date of
April 1, 1950, has been set for
the beginning of work on the new
building which was designed by
Alfred Morton Githers of New
The plans for this building pre
sent a picture of space and ad
equacy that the old rooms lack.
It will contain a museum, book
stacks, a Search Room for seri
ous study, and various reading
rooms for casual reading.
A plaque is to be erected at the
entrance of the Foundation in
recognition of the two hundred
and fifty individuals and organi
zations that have contributed to
the new Foundation.
We are proud that this building
will be here in Montreat. It will
bring here many distinguished
scholars, research workers, church
historians, and the like, and we,
the students of Montreat, will
be greatly benefited by the possi
ble contacts with them. We are
especially indebted to this Founda
tion for bringing here a man
whose services we are enjoying.
The chief reason for Reverend
Curry’s being here is to complete
in the Historical Foundation the
research he began in Edinburgh,
Scotland, and we are thankful
for the opportunity of having him
here among us.
