Scope and Content
The series contains files for each time the Pepperdine Bible Lectures were held. Lectures have been held yearly since 1943
(but not in 1957); an extra lecture series was also held during the summer of the years between 1958 and 1967. Each file contains
a program with the schedule for the lectureship, at the minimum. Most folders also have advertisements, flyers, or newspaper
clippings. Most of the early files between 1943 and approximately 1965 include correspondence and other papers related to
the organization and running of the Bible Lectures. Two files at the beginning of the series include summary pages (which
list the dates, theme, director, speakers, and other information for each year), director lists, and theme lists for lectures
between 1943 and 1990. One folder includes a booklet honoring Jerry Rushford's 30-year tenure as director of the Bible Lectures.
Files are arranged chronologically by date. The two files with summary pages, director lists, and theme lists are placed at
the beginning of the series. One file containing a booklet about Jerry Rushford's 30-year tenure as director is placed after
the folder for 2012.
