Repository description (extant): Loma Linda University has a long history of collecting Adventist materials. The old "Historical Records" office, which housed original Ellen G. White documents pertaining to the history of the College of Medical Evangelists, was small indeed, but it paved the way for the immense and developed collections now housed at Loma Linda's Department of Archives and Special Collections. Today this department offers researchers from around the world a wide-range of materials from local Loma Linda history, other Adventist institutions, to information regarding the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Serious efforts in collecting and organizing the research collection began with the establishment of the Department of Archives and Special Collections. Now connected to the Del E. Webb Memorial Library, the Department of Archives and Special Collections has been the recipient of major denominational collections. The first came as a gift from Clair Burton Clark, a Seventh-day Adventist layman who privately collected books, periodicals, and other primary sources relating to the history of Adventism. Additionally, the Peterson Collection, acquired from the New York Public Library, and the Lebowitz Collection have also added significantly to the department's holdings.

The James F. Barnard Endowment fund is of great value to the growth of collections in the department. Established after Dr. Barnard's death in 1981, the endowment is a valuable source of funds that allow the department to expand its collections and begin new projects.

C. Burton Clark Heritage Reading RoomThrough departmental purchases and numerous large and small donations, Loma Linda University's Department of Archives and Special Collections now has one of the significant research collections of Adventist source materials worldwide. The aim of the department is to share these resources with scholars, students, and other researchers.
