Harley J. Stucky Papers

  • US BCMLA 00/MS.459
  • Collection
  • 1886-2005

The collection documents Harley J. Stucky’s academic career and involvement in numerous historical, community, and church activities. Extensive correspondence is available from throughout his life and provides unique insights into a number of programs, ranging from the early development of Camp Mennoscah and other youth programs (including the North Newton 4H club as well as Western District and General Conference institutions) to the various historical organizations and celebrations for which he played major leadership roles. His insider role occasionally highlighted issues and disagreements within the numerous organizations. Stucky read quite widely and collected many pamphlets and clippings on topics related to his teaching and interests, especially those regarding international relations and nonresistance. Most significant perhaps are the materials on conscientious objection, disarmament ,and universal military service. One unique aspect of the collection is that Stucky retained copies of most, or perhaps all, of the term papers of his students, and the set from Bethel College is especially extensive. This collection provides the most extensive documentation of the Mennonite and wheat centennial celebrations in 1974, and especially of the controversies surrounding the relationship of the Wheat Committee and the Kansas Wheat Commission regarding the Kansas Wheat Center after the centennial.
