Description
  • This talk, a culmination of 10 years of research by the GTU Archivist, was given to a UC-Berkeley faculty group at Newman Hall in April 2000. Lucinda Glenn served as the GTU archivist for over 23 years, retiring in August 2012. Single-handedly she managed the operation of the manuscript and institutional archives, establishing the collection as one of the best in the country in the areas of religion and social justice, new religious movements, and religious activities in 20th century California. Outside of the GTU, she held leadership positions in the Society of American Archivists and the Society of California Archivists, of which she was president in 2008-9. She is recognized as an authority on processing religious collections and managing the privacy and confidentiality issues related to pastoral work. Lucinda grew up in a military family in Orange County. She moved to northern California for her higher education. She received a BA in Medieval English History from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1972; a MA from Pacific School of Religion (her thesis: “John Wesley’s Development of a Doctrine of the Church”) in 1980; and a MA in Librarianship with a specialization in archives from the University of Denver in 1981. After graduation, she served as a missionary to rural parishes in Tennessee and Mississippi for the United Methodist Church. Returning to the West Coast, she worked in a Methodist’s women’s center in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Following a brief stint working in the GTU library, Lucinda was hired in 1982 for three positions: secretary to Dean Claude Welch, secretary for the Center for Jewish Studies, and coordinator of the GTU Placement Office. In 1989, she became the archivist, gathering materials from closets, basements and other dusty corners of the GTU, and began the archives program.
