Abstract:

Collection contains many files of correspondence, writings and sermons, leaflets, pamphlets, bulletins, financial records, clippings, newsletters, calendars, reports, course materials, minutes, printed material, notes, press releases, photographs, sound recordings, and films, dating chiefly from the late 1950's to 1978, the year of Marney's death. The principal focus of the collection reflects Marney's professional career as a Baptist clergyman, serving two lengthy pastorates at First Baptist Church in Austin, Texas (1948-1958), and at Myers Park as Founder-Director of Interpreters' House, an ecumenical center of study and work (1967-1978). The Correspondence, Writings and speeches, and Engagements form the major groups in the collection. Topics present throughout the papers include building the 20th century Southern religious community in the face of war, race relations, and prejudice; modern societies in general; rural poverty; theological discussion of the death of God; the American Baptist Convention; and the state of the Baptist Church, especially in Texas and North Carolina. The Abingdon Press, which published many of Marney's books, is often mentioned in the papers. A diary from 1954, describes Marney's trip to Korea and Japan.

Other organizations represented include the Christian Century Foundation, the Church and Race Conference in Charlotte N.C., the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the President's National Advisory Commission on Rural Poverty, The Committee on Religion in Appalachia. Prominent correspondents include James T. Cleland, William Sloan Coffin, Pope A. Duncan, Findley Edge, Harry Golden, William J. Kilgore, Martin Luther King, Jr., Karl Menninger, Bill Moyers, Guy Ranson, and Elton Trueblood.
