History and background materials include histories, promotional materials, and newspaper articles. The Episcopal Student Foundation Board of Trustees series consists of minutes, financial records, correspondence, and files relating to building facilities.

This series also includes photographs, sound recordings, and files relating to the Institute of Public Theology and the conferences sponsored by it.
