|Abstract||This collection of the personal files of Olive Hoggins contains correspondence, photographs, newspaper clippings, edited versions of congregational histories, ephemera, etc. Most of the denominational history pertains to Kansas City, although some Independence and other area churches are included. Research materials consist primarily of photocopies of newspaper articles; publications from individual churches; as well as programs and other documents. The photos consist of pictures of church buildings, as well as over 100 portraits of clergymen.|
It appears that the Missouri Valley Historical Society sponsored this work, starting in the early 1920s. Olive Hoggins was the compiler and writer, probably intending to publish a book, but the material seems never to have been issued in book form and was only published in the Saturday church page of the Kansas City Post, appearing between 1927 and 1930.
