This collection includes Ms. Bennett's papers which have to do with her interest in peace issues and the movements to end
the war in Vietnam; and, following the end of the war, the issues of women's ordination -- the place of women in the church
-- and inclusive language. The papers are both generated by her (speeches, etc.), and collected by her (articles and papers
of other persons having to do with Bennett's subjects of interest and research). The papers were received in the Archives
with the provenance entirely destroyed. The collection has therefore been given an artificial arrangement.
Anne McGrew (1903-1986) was born November 24, 1903 in Lincoln County, Nebraska of Scotch-Irish homesteaders. Raised in the
Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the church was always a central part of Anne's life. After high school, Anne taught
in a country school then entered college. She received a B.S. degree in elementary education from the University of Nebraska
in 1928. She entered Auburn Seminary in upstate New York. There she met and married John C. Bennett, professor of theology
and ethics, in 1931. The M.A. in Religious Education was received in 1932.
