Methodist Center Digitization Project Tops 3,000 Images

What do 3,000 old-time Methodists look like in one place? The Drew Library’s Shared Shelf Commonsfeed!

The staff of the Drew University Methodist Library has been digitizing several thousand folders of archived images to Shared Shelf Commons. The images date from the 18th century to the present and include a variety of persons affiliated with the global Methodist tradition. Pictures include educators, missionaries, ministers, and social justice advocates. Most of the images highlight individuals from the United Methodist Church tradition but many evidence individuals from lesser known Methodist-related denominations.

Scholars, teachers, and students looking for images to compliment their books, classroom presentations, or course papers will find the images useful as visual representations from history. The images can be viewed at the website link below and high resolution copies are available by contacting the staff of the United Methodist Archives and History Center.
