The Center for Restoration Studies is a repository of books, archival materials (cabinets and boxes of file folders, papers, audio/video cassettes etc.) and artifacts connected with the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement. These items are referenced in our Collections Database. We plan to place a scanned image of every item in the collection online - some items already have a scanned image online.
Although the CRS contains a rich collection of nineteenth-century materials, the chief focus is on Churches of Christ, especially their twentieth-century development.
The collection is housed in Abilene Christian University's Brown Library adjacent to the Special Collections Department. Douglas Foster is Director, Craig Churchill is Archivist. Also involved in Center activities is Dr. Carisse Berryhill, Director of Special Collections.
