SOHP Series F. Fellowship of Southern Churchmen
- Creator: Southern Oral History Program
- Collection: Southern Oral History Program Interviews
Interviews with members of the Fellowship of Southern Churchmen (FSC) were mostly conducted from 1983 to 1985. The FSC was originally called the Younger Churchmen of the South, and first met in May 1934 at Monteagle, Tenn. As an interracial and interdenominational Christian organization, it worked closely with such groups as the NAACP and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith for the improvement of social conditions in the rural South. The interviewer was Dallas A. Blanchard, who received funding for the project from the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion. Interviews deal with the interviewees' participation in the FSC and with their previous and subsequent activities.

Kester Papers (#03834) at the Southern Historical Collection, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
