Collection Finding Aid
This artificial collection, as its title implies, documents the separation of Church and State in the United States. Created by Harrell, the materials were gathered from a variety of sources, including the Americans for Religious Liberty (ARL), the Council on Religious Freedom, and the Americans United Research Foundation. The majority of organizational materials are from Americans United for the Separation of Church and State (AU) and the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty (BJC). The collection includes Vertical Files documenting a range of issues, key individuals, and major events all linked to the separation of church and state and chiefly date from the early 1960s.
