Charles F. Weller papers, 1895-1957; 2004; 2014 Rauner Manuscript MS-1295

Introduction to the Collection

The papers of Charles F. Weller contain personal and professional correspondence, writings, photographs, printed material and records related to his personal life and that of his wife Eugenia Winston Weller as well as his founding and leadership (1941-1952) of the World Fellowship of Faiths Center in New Hampshire. Of note are the early records and correspondence regarding the Center whose mission of social consciousness, inclusiveness and world peace were a reflection of Weller's core world view. These views are also reflected in the hundreds of poems and sermons (verses) he wrote, often on a daily basis, which are also included in this collection. Correspondents include Lola Maverick Lloyd, Margaret Sanger, Sakuntula Rao Sashti, and Willard Uphaus. A disbound scrapbook with annotated photographs, correspondence and memorabilia related to the World Fellowship of Faiths, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Playground and Recreation Association, the League of Neighbors and the Boy Scouts of America is also included.
