You are welcome to come for any length of time

You are invited to work with others on the tasks of organizing the rich legacy of the Order Ecumenical, the Ecumenical Institute and the Institute of Cultural Affairs. This Archival work is focused on different “records” each day. Recently, the Fifth City Project has been organized and foldered with files dating from the early 1960s. A special section has been arranged on the Fifth City Preschool.

Audio Visual collections are being organized with a 4ft by 6ft light table and 3000 slides are scanned and being digitized. Many more need to be examined. Each person can choose which collection to explore.

Volunteers are continuing their focus on the Global Archives Project. Individuals and groups of colleagues gather for archival tasks, discussions and community life.

An active Archive Team is working on site at 4750 and many are working at home. Let us know if you are interested in being part of that team.

Your support can help the ICA-USA mission in many ways. For more information, contact Seva Gandhi 773-769-6363 x312 or Marge Philbrook, 773-769-6363 x235 or email the Archives Team at
