Scope and Contents: The Horace C. Atwater Collection consists of a copy of Atwater’s handwritten diary and original handwritten lecture notes and handwritten sermons that Atwater wrote and delivered as a minister between the 1840s and the 1870s. The sermons help document religious life and Protestant denominational practices in mid-19th century America, especially Atwater’s time as a Presbyterian minister in East Tennessee. The notes and sermons are arranged in alphabetical order by title with untitled material filed at the end of the series. Atwater generally used part of a verse of scripture in titling his sermons. The source of this text from the Bible (King James Version) is identified in brackets. [Example: [II Kings 5:12] refers to the second book of Kings, Chapter 5, verse 12] A compact disc containing digital scanned images of the diary and five of the sermons is also included.
