Donald G. Brockett collection 1950-1975

Donald G. Brockett, 1937-1986, was a Congregational minister. While a seminarian at Andover Newton Theological School, Brockett participated in efforts to integrate the Boston public schools, volunteering as a teacher in the Freedom School Movement in 1964. He served various parishes before assuming the pastorship of the Suisun-Fairfield First Congregational Church in Suisun City, California, in 1971, a position he held until the mid-1980s. The collection comprises correspondence, photographs, and audio tapes, most of which were written, recorded, or collected by Donald G. Brockett, documenting his religious and intellectual development and pastoral work in Massachusetts and California. Although the bulk of the correspondence was written by Brockett to his parents, the collection contains scattered letters from theologians and ministers, including Paul Tillich. Audio tapes contain sermons, lectures, messages, and conversations by Brockett and others, including John C. Bennett and Morton Kelsey.
