How You Can Help with the Berry Street Web Archive Project
You may have - in your church archives or in your personal files - an un-posted Berry Street Essay. If so, the Berry Street Project urgently needs you to find it and get it to our Project team.
All ministers are asked to please review the "needed essay listing”.
To see and search this listing click here.
You may see a list of essays which have already been posted by clicking the "Essay Listing" drop down menu titled "More In This Section: or by the clicking on the following link: http://www.uuma.org/page/berrystreetessays
You can search the listings either by entering the name of a respected predecessor, to learn the date and the title of an Essay s/he delivered, or the name of your church's city, to learn the names of all your predecessors who gave Berry Street Essays, along with their Essay titles and dates of delivery. This will let you see what to look for (or ask your church archivist to look for) in your archives or files.
If you find a not yet posted Essay, please inform the Rev. Paul Sprecher ASAP by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Paul will tell you where to mail a photocopy and - if you can do so - where to send an electronic copy which can be quickly put up on our website.
Please come through on this, Colleagues. We have now found and posted 141 off the 195 essays delivered in the past 187 sessions of the Berry Street Conference (two addresses were given in some years during the 1850s). Any help you can offer will be much appreciated.
