Access to the archives and special collections for Emory & Henry College, the Hunt Collection, and the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church is provided in the Bishop Earl G. Hunt Jr. Library & Research Room, located on the second floor of Kelly Library. Out of town researchers who desire to use the collections are encouraged to contact the archivist first to make an appointment. Complex reference questions will be answered as staff and time permit.
The College archives contain documents and ephemera that tell the story of Emory & Henry’s history, and include such items as the minutes of the board of trustees, faculty minutes, papers of previous College presidents and officers, student registers, and course catalogs. The Hunt Collection contains nearly 2,400 books dealing with theology and homiletics that belonged to Bishop Earl Gladstone Hunt Jr., Emory & Henry’s 14th president whom the Methodist Church elevated to the episcopacy in 1964. The archives of the Holston Conference contain the Conference’s minutes, annual journals, photographs, numerous church histories, and limited biographical information on some of the Methodist pastors who ministered in the Conference.
