The Johnson City Youth Council Collection documents the operations of this religious and civic youth organization between 1937 and the mid-1940s, as well as other activities of Earl Hunt, Jr., as a student at East Tennessee State College in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Material in the collection includes correspondence, telegrams, pamphlets, and a scrapbook with clippings and photographs.
Files are arranged in alphabetical order by subject content with the scrapbook stored in an oversized box. Note: Hunt's book "Recovering the Sacred: Papers from the Sanctuary and the Academy" and a biography of Hunt written by James C. Logan titled "A Charge to Keep: The Life of Earl Gladstone Hunt, Jr." were removed and have been cataloged into Special Collections.
