Subseries 2. Autobiographies, 1938-1978

Scope and Content Notes:

A great deal of information was gleaned by Dr. Faires from examining the lives of German-American missionaries and church founders. This subseries contains their autobiographies, which give insight not only into their own lives, but into the spiritual life of the region itself. Many of them are quite lengthy, and describe decades of work within the religious communities in the Pittsburgh area. Also present are Dr. Faires own notes which help to evaluate and examine the sources.
