Name of creator
The TWU Archives was informally established in 1982, on the strength of grant funding acquired by Library Director David Twiest, who began to accummulate school records, as well as the archival records of Robert N. Thompson; in 1982-1983 he hired a contract archivist to begin to manage these materials.
For some years, very little work was accomplished, owing to a lack of funding.
In 1988, Ted Goshulak accepted the position of reference librarian; his responsibilities included general oversight of the archives department, which was by now established as part of the library.
In 1994 Sylvia Stopforth was hired to work on a part-time basis as reference librarian and archivist. Between 1995 and 2014, Stopforth successfully applied for over $47,000 in provincial and federal grant funding, which was applied to salaries, shelving, supplies, and computer hardware and software. Student assistants were hired with funding from the Work Studies Program, a provincial program that was cut ca. 2002.
- These majority of these materials were donated to the TWU Archives by Board member Allan Hedberg in 2001
- In the summer of 2008, Dwight Johnson, Church Relations, sent a set of EFCA yearbooks to the archives. This acquisition allowed us to fill in a few gaps, and update the collection from 2000 to 2005.
Scope and content
This collection consists of yearbooks published by the Evangelical Church of America. Reports from Trinity Western University were submitted annually, and are included in the "reports" section of these publications. The collection also includes several miscellaneous publications and pamphlets documenting the history of the EFCA, also donated by Dr. Hedberg.
