F. D. Nichol Collection (17 boxes)
Nichol, as editor of the Review and Herald, was perhaps one of the most well known Adventists during the middle decades of the 20th century. He was an apologist and was the editor of the SDA Bible Commentary series. This collection is principally resource materials on William Miller and the Millerite Movement as part of his book, The Midnight Cry. There are other materials as well.
