BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY

Donald Grey Barnhouse (1895-1960) was a fundamentalist Presbyterian minister who was pastor of the Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia from 1927 until his death in 1960. A noted expositor of the Bible, Barnhouse travelled throughout the United States and around the world, preaching and hosting Bible conferences. He was also a pioneer radio preacher. He began broadcasting radio sermons in the 1920s, eventually launching his own network program, "The Bible Study Hour." In 1949, he began his famous study of Romans which continued each week for nearly twelve years until his death. (As of 2011, this radio program continues to air online under the auspices of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals as "Dr. Barnhouse & the Bible.") Barnhouse founded and was president of the Evangelical Foundation in Philadelphia, which, during his lifetime, managed the business aspects of his ministry in Philadelphia and around the world. He served as editor of the magazines Revelation and Eternity.


Barnhouse was born in Watsonville, California on March 28, 1895. His parents were Theodore and Jennie Carmichael Barnhouse. He dedicated himself to Christianity at the young age of fifteen after attending a Christian Endeavor Convention in San Jose. On graduating from Watsonville High School in 1912, he enrolled at the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, where he studied with Reuben Archer Torrey, a noted dispensationalist. Subsequently, Barnhouse studied at the University of Chicago and the Princeton Theological Seminary. In 1917, before completing his course of study at Princeton, he enlisted in the army to serve in World War I in the Aviation Section of the Signal Corps. First Lieutenant Barnhouse was ordained on April 9, 1918 by the Presbytery of Monmouth, Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A.


After the war, Barnhouse served as a missionary in Belgium with the Belgian Gospel Mission (Mission Belge Évangélique), helping to found the Ecole Biblique de Belgique. After two years, he left Belgium and served two Reformed Churches in the French Alps. While there, he attended the University of Grenoble.


Barnhouse returned to the United States in 1925 and settled in Philadelphia. He took classes at the University of Pennsylvania and served as a teaching assistant in the history department. For two years, he held the pastorate of Grace Presbyterian Church. In 1927, he was called to the Tenth Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia, a struggling congregation of only 347 people, which he would lead for the next thirty-three years. In 1931, he began publishing Revelation, a magazine which published his sermons, expositions, and religious interpretations of current events. Revelation was published until 1950, when he started and served as editor for the magazine Eternity.


As early as 1928, Barnhouse broadcast his weekly Vesper services on the radio, which eventually became his famous Bible Study Hour. The program quickly grew in popularity and, at its peak, was broadcast over 455 stations nationwide. As a result of the popularity of his radio program, Barnhouse was invited to preach and teach in churches across the United States. He travelled extensively, hosting one-man Bible conferences around the world. In fact, in 1940, he requested and received permission from his congregation at Tenth Presbyterian for sixth months leave annually for travelling. In 1949, he founded the Evangelical Foundation, which managed his worldwide ministry.


Though Barnhouse was beloved by his many followers and students, his life and career was not without controversy. From the beginning, he was severely critical of other Christian leaders with whom he disagreed, both within the Presbyterian Church and without. This resulted in strained relations with the Churchs governing body as well as with fellow Presbyterian ministers. In fact, in 1932, he was brought before an appointed judicial committee of the Synod of Pennsylvania, where he was found guilty of being in violation of the ninth commandment as well as his ordination vows. This conviction did not change Barnhouse, however, and his harsh and public critique of other Christian leaders continued until 1953, when he published in Eternity his famous New Years Resolution. In his resolution, he described a changed personal attitude towards people with whom he disagreed. Among other things, he promised to focus more on the ideas and attitudes he held in common with others, rather than his former tendency to focus on their differences and where he felt they were wrong.


As already stated, at different times, Barnhouse attended the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, the University of Chicago, Princeton Theological Seminary, the University of Grenoble, and the University of Pennsylvania. He earned the Master in Theology degree from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1927 and received the honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from the Evangelical Theological College (later Dallas Theological Seminary) in 1933 and the Doctor of Theology degree from the Protestant Theological Seminary, Aix-en-Provence, France in 1952.


Barnhouse was married twice. He married his first wife, Ruth Tiffany, a fellow missionary in Belgium, in 1922. Together they had four children: Ruth Tiffany, Donald Grey Jr., David Heath and Dorothy Grace. In 1944, Ruth died of cancer. After several years, Barnhouse married Margaret Bell. Margaret and her first husband, Doug, had met Barnhouse in the late 1940s, when they attended one of his Bible conferences near Sarasota, Florida. Barnhouse and the Bells were fast friends and developed a mutual respect for each other. In fact, Barnhouse invited Doug Bell to sit on the board of the Evangelical Foundation. In 1953, Doug Bell suffered a heart attack and died unexpectedly. Margaret turned to Barnhouse for support and guidance, and the two fell in love. They were married on June 8, 1954.


Barnhouse died six years later at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia on November 5, 1960.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The Donald Grey Barnhouse Papers, circa 1860s-2000s, includes correspondence, writings, subject files, vital records, photographs, audio recordings and other materials documenting the professional and personal life of Donald Grey Barnhouse, a popular evangelical minister and radio preacher who worked in Philadelphia from the 1920s until his death in 1960. The collection is particularly rich in material related to Barnhouse's Christian media ministry, which included the magazines Revelation and Eternity; "The Bible Study Hour" radio broadcasts; and the Evangelical Foundation, a non-profit organized by Barnhouse in the 1940s to produce religious publications and programming, and to manage his worldwide ministry.


The Barnhouse Papers provide biographical insight into the life and ministry of their creator, Donald Grey Barnhouse, a significant figure in early twentieth century Protestantism. Additionally, the collection contains extensive documentation of Barnhouse's multi-faceted ministry as pastor of Philadelphia's Tenth Presbyterian Church, as Bible conference teacher, and as popular radio preacher. Moreover, the collection provides substantial insight into the Christian media empire built by Barnhouse under the auspices of the Evangelical Foundation. During the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, thousands of Americans tuned into Barnhouse's weekly radio program, bought subscriptions to Barnhouse's magazines, and traveled to hear Barnhouse preach and teach at events the world over. When Barnhouse died suddenly in 1960, numerous letters poured in from around the world, expressing their sorrow at the minister's passing. These facts evidence Barnhouses enduring esteem among evangelical Christians, but also provide insight into the beliefs and practices of mid-twentieth century American evangelical Christians. Those interested in the history of American evangelicalism and fundamentalism, as well as those interested in the history of religious broadcasting, will derive much value from this collection.


The Donald Grey Barnhouse Papers are divided into six series: Professional papers, 1910s-1969; Personal papers, 1896-1962; Clippings and printed matter, 1886-1975, bulk 1910-1960; Paul A. Hopkins biographical research on Donald Grey Barnhouse, 1887-2000s; Photographs and photograph albums, circa 1860s-1950s and Audio recordings, 1954-1961.


The Professional papers, 1910s-1969 series contains subject files and articles, addresses, sermons, radio scripts and other materials written by Donald Grey Barnhouse. The series is divided into two subseries: Subject and correspondence files, 1917-1969 and Writings, 1910s-1961.


The Subject and correspondence files, 1917-1969 subseries primarily consists of correspondence and printed matter related to Barnhouse's professional life. These papers are arranged into subject files containing related correspondence, reports, minutes and/or other documents. The majority of the subject files cover issues and topics that are related to the Evangelical Foundation, a non-profit organization established by Barnhouse to create and distribute evangelical media, and the magazines Eternity and Revelation, for which Barnhouse served as editor. Other subject files are related to Barnhouse's thoughts about foreign missionary work, his relations with the Presbyterian Church and his trial for heresy before the Church's leadership. Records related to the trial are filed under "Presbyterian Church in the USA vs. Donald G. Barnhouse." The subseries also contains correspondence that documents Barnhouse's interactions with influential twentieth century figures, notably Billy Graham, J. Edgar Hoover, Walt Disney, Kwame Nkrumah, J. Howard Pew, Harold Ockenga and others. The files in this subseries are arranged alphabetically by subject or correspondent.


The "Writings, 1910s-1961 subseries includes articles, sermons, Bible studies and other writings penned by Barnhouse. Materials in this subseries are in both draft and published forms. The bulk of this subseries are sermons, scripts, and Bible studies related to the Bible Study Hour, Barnshouse's weekly radio broadcast. The materials in this subseries are arranged alphabetically by material type.


The Personal papers, 1896-1962 series contains correspondence, notes, vital records, a diary and other materials related to Barnhouses personal life. The series is divided into three subseries: Correspondence, circa 1910s-1939; Education, 1904-1933 and Vital records and ephemera, 1896-1962.


The Correspondence, circa 1910s-1939 subseries contains personal letters, telegrams, postcards and correspondence written by and to Barnhouse. There are several files that contain correspondence to or from particular people; however, a majority of the correspondence is filed in general correspondence files and arranged chronologically.


The Education, 1904-1933 subseries includes yearbooks, course notes, course work, study guides, writings, a play script, hymn book and book lists related to Barnhouse's schooling. The bulk of the material relates to Barnhouses time as student at the Bible Institute of Los Angeles (BIOLA) during the 1910s. Other materials are related to his studies at Watsonville High School, Princeton Theological Seminary, the University of Grenoble, the University of Pennsylvania and the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Some course notes are in French. The material is arranged alphabetically by the name of the educational institution and material type.


The Vital records and ephemera, 1896-1962 subseries consists of financial records, legal documents, a diary, a Bible translated into Amharic, an address book and an herbarium that were owned or produced by Donald Grey Barnhouse. The materials in this subseries are arranged alphabetically by material type.


The Clippings and printed matter, 1896-1975, bulk 1910-1960 series contains clippings, books and other printed materials. Some of this material appears to have been owned and/or collected by Barnhouse himself, while other materials may have been gathered by Paul A. Hopkins. There are newspaper and magazine clippings that reflect both the mainstream and religious press treatment of Barnhouse and his ministry. This series is arranged alphabetically by material type.


The Paul A. Hopkins biographical research on Donald Grey Barnhouse, 1887-2000s series contains notes, correspondence, printed matter and other material collected by Paul A. Hopkins, business manager of the Evangelical Foundation, during his research for a biography of Donald Grey Barnhouse. Of particular interest is Hopkins transcript of an interview conducted in the 1960s with Barnhouse's sister, Mabel Jean Barnhouse, in which she shares memories of Barnhouses first wife, Ruth, as well as memories of Barnhouse as a child. This series is arranged alphabetically by person or record type.


The Photographs and photograph albums, circa 1860s-1950s series contains photographic prints, ambrotypes, daguerreotypes and two photograph albums that visually depict Barnhouse, his family and friends, and his ministry. In particular, there are photographs of Barnhouse on various trips, both recreational and professional, in Korea, Germany, Austria, Italy and other places. There are also photographs of Barnhouse in England, where he frequently taught at the Keswick Convention, an annual gathering of evangelical Christians. Materials in this series are arranged alphabetically by subject.


The Audio recordings, 1954-1961 series contains twelve reel-to-reel tape recordings. A majority of these recordings are of Barnhouse delivering sermons, both at Tenth Presbyterian Church and at speaking engagements outside of Philadelphia. Additionally, some of the recordings capture interviews with people who knew Barnhouse and that were familiar with his life and ministry. It is likely that these recordings were part of Paul A. Hopkins' biographical research. Materials in this series are arranged alphabetically.
