Special Collections Papers of YDS Professors: Home


Among the materials in the Yale Divinity Library Special Collections are the personal papers of many Yale Divinity School (YDS) professors. This guide gives information about and links to a small but representative sample of these materials, sorted by discipline. Because this guide is on former professors, it does, however, skew heavily white and male. For the full history of YDS and its faculty, see the recent book "This Grand Errand:" A Bicentennial History of Yale Divinity School.
